Membership Benefits

Owning a Flying Scot has many advantages, one being an opportunity to join the Flying Scot Sailing Association (FSSA).  We hope you will join us!

The Flying Scot Sailing Association (FSSA), founded in 1959, is one of the largest and strongest one-design sailing class associations in the world. Our strict adherence to the one design concept means that the Flying Scot built this year will remain compatible and competitive for years to come with newer as well as older boats. Owners of Flying Scots are assured that their boats will last for years, and its re-sale value will remain excellent. Also, the FSSA helps promote the Flying Scot which maintains the boats popularity and value.

  • You are eligible to compete in district, regional, and national regattas.
