Class History

Harken congratulates the Flying Scott Class which In January 2012, celebrated the build of hull #6000.Designed in 1957 by Gordon K.(Sandy) Douglass, this 19 foot, stable centerboarder is easy-to-sail, forgiving and fun. The large cockpit holds eight, making it ideal for gunkholing and family daysailing. A crew of two or three can put this popular boat through its paces for tight, tactical racing. Selected for the American Sailing Hall of Fame in 1998, the Flying Scot has been used for many US Sailing events including the Mallory, Adams and Sears Cup Championships. flying-scot-sailplan.gif
