We all know how great it is to see younger sailors in our boats!  Well, the US Sailing Chubb US Junior Championships start Monday August 7 and run through Friday August 11, 2017, at Toms River Yacht Club in Toms River, NJ.  One of the 3 boats being sailed will be Flying Scots, with Junior teams going three up.  It's great to see the class promoting the sport for Junior sailors, and there will be 10 teams racing Flying Scots in the event!  We're hoping there will be some pictures to share during and after the event.  The link to the event is at

Brian Hayes from North Sails will be there Sunday to give a clinic at Seaside, get the boats tuned and share some tips with the Junior Sailors.  Aftter the event, some of you who were lucky enough to get in on the deal will be the owners of the North Sails used in the event.

This is all around good news for Flying Scot sailing! Good luck to all the Juniors - we will be watching!
