2015 Raffle Winners

"I'm about to pick up my new Flying Scot next week, and I would like to express my thanks to the FSSA.

While this is the first Flying Scot I actually own, our family experience with the boat goes way back to our visit to the Flying Scot booth at a boat show in New Jersey many years ago.  My wife and I had three young kids in tow, and the simplicity and stability of the boat attracted us.  Unfortunately for the sales rep, we also saw a newly designed Freedom 21 and bought one.  After a move to Woods Hole, MA, we exchanged the Freedom 21 for restoring an old Cheoy Lee 31 Offshore and sailed it there several years till we decided to move to Charleston SC.  I sold the Cheoy Lee, planning to buy another boat in Charleston, once established there.  It was at that time I began thinking of the Flying Scot again, and started searching for a used boat within driving distance.  I routinely monitored your classified section of the FSSA website for over three years!  I renewed my search several months ago and came across the raffle you organized, confidently thinking that the 1/250 odds seemed awfully good - and you know the rest of the story!

I changed my membership with FSSA this morning to a full membership under the new hull #6067!  We will get the hull wet for the first time on Owasco Lake in the New York Finger Lakes, then return the boat to Charleston this Fall.  I look forward to exploring association with a fleet in one of the locations."

2014 Chaos Cup 3rd Greg and Diane Kampf                         The fall colors were beautiful around the lake!               

WIth 11 boats on the line, QYC held the 2014 Chaos Cup in shifting and gusting winds and confusing us all enough to know why they should call it the Chaos Cup.  But that's not why.  The Chaos Cup started with a group of 110 racers in 1985, and at some point the boat named Chaos met with a sad fate when the Coast Guard rescued the crew from the boat and then had to let the boat crash and get ruined on the rocks.  But now it's a Flying Scot regatta and we are the lucky ones competing for the cup.
