Excerpts from One-Design Yachtsman - The Magazine of Sailboat Racing September, 1965

Something a little different this time with a fun look back in time to fifty years ago this September when Flying Scots were still only three digits in hull/sail numbers and only about forty fleets strong in the US and Canada.  Also, for those who did not know Sandy, this is a good insight of his determination and dedication to Flying Scots.  Exceprts are below - read the full article here.


Here are some excerpts from the magazine article: 

"Among the many regatta invitations piled high on our desk was one from Gordon "Sandy" Douglass to sail the Mid-Atlantic Flying Scot Championship at Deep Creek Lake in Oakland, Maryland, on June 24 and 25".

"Oakland, high on the Appalachian Shelf, in the middle of a large farming area with hillbillies, mountain music and that sort of jazz, is about as un-salty an area as you can find".

"As we looked forward to the surprises that the 400-plus miles inland would have for us, we were aware of only one ingredient in this new stew.  Sandy Douglass is one of the saltiest and most knowledgeable helmsmen in the tiller mechanic business".

2015 ACC at Blackbeard Sailing Club - video by NishFuts Productions

The 2015 Flying Scot Atlantic Coast Championships were in New Bern, N.C. and was a great event. A nasty storm came through and cut things short but everyone was okay and it was still a success.  Here is a video from the event produced by NishFuts Productions - thanks to Joe Brake for sharing!

Ben and I decided at the last minute to drive to New Bern, NC, for the Atlantic Coast Championships. We had always wanted to participate in that event, one of only four national events the FSSA sanctions. Plus, we've always wanted to sail at Blackbeard, since it is near Ben's parents' home.

2015 New England Districts at Massabesic YC, Manchester, NH

           2015NE3      2915NE2 

Massabesic Yacht Club in Manchester, NH, hosted their first New England Districts with 15 boats from 4 New England fleets - Massabesic, Massapoag, Quannapowitt and Rockport.  We elected our new District Governor, Ned Jeffries and said thanks to our outgoing Governor Skip Miontello who had senved us well for 6 years in the role.

After a forecast of thunderstorms threatened to put a damper on things, the weather and winds cooperated fully with temps in 70's and south/southeast winds from 6-10 and occasionally higher. We had 5 races, a combination of Olympics and W-L with the last race coming just in time before the deadline of 3:30. We all had a great time. Shore side hospitality was great and we thank Dennis Dobe and crew a great regatta. Roger and Laura Sharp won the event - full results are here.
