Flying Scot Racing
*There are 12 races scheduled for this season and all occur on Saturdays. You are not required to attend all races to sign up.
This program will be open to all adult sailors. We will connect inexperienced sailors with experienced sailors.
Based on other community racing programs, this program aims to make it easy and fun for adults to race sailboats on Duxbury Bay. Participants will be put on teams (balanced with experience) and then will race boats each week on a rotational basis. The boats, Flying Scots, will be rigged with spinnakers and tuned to be as even as possible. The boat rotation will ensure no team has an unfair advantage. It is essential to the program that each team’s boat makes it to the line every Saturday, so a sub-list will help facilitate full participation. The program is open to sailors of all abilities and racing clinics and practice days will be scheduled into the program.
– Sailors will be put on teams (balancing experienced with inexperienced sailors).
-Practice races on select weekday evenings (as tide allows – dates TBD) with series races on Saturdays
-Teams sail a different boat each week, on a rotation determined prior to season start.
*Note – due to the team format, not every sailor will get to sail each week. Sailors will be able to sail most Saturdays, but teammate availability, schedules, etc will effect how much each team member can sail. We will do our best to make this equitable for everyone.
-Price: $350 per person
