Flying Scot Deck Layout

57 mm Carbo Mainsheet System

This efficient 4:1 system features a Carbo® ratchet mounted to a swivel base that rotates to face the trimmer. Sailors can hand-hold loaded lines and trim and ease under complete control.

 

 

Racing Vang

Built of lightweight 29 and 40 mm Carbo blocks, this free-running system provides a powerful 12:1 mechanical advantage for fast sail adjustments. The vang terminates on the centerboard trunk and cleats to a Harken Cam-Matic® cleat with X-Treme Angle Fairlead for easy cleating/uncleating on either tack.

 

Cunningham

This 6:1 cascading system cleats on the centerboard trunk and provides plenty of power to play the cunningham from either side of the boat.

Class History

This 1957 one-design by racing champion Gordon Douglass celebrates 60 years of continuous production this year and remains one of North America’s most successful planing one-designs. Hard bilges and weighted centerboard make the Flying Scot practically untippable and perfect for family daysailing, while its deliberately simple rig shifts focus from tuning and boat speed toward exciting tactical racing by a crew of two or three. In 1998, the Flying Scot was inducted into the American Sailing Hall of Fame and has been used for many U.S. sailing events, including the Mallory, Adams, and Sears Cups.
