About Flying Scot Sailing Association

The Flying Scot Sailing Association (FSSA) is the class association of the Flying Scot, a 19-foot centerboard sloop used for both family day sailing and racing. The Flying Scot is one of the oldest and largest one-design sailboat classes in the world. The late Sandy Douglass designed and built the boat and raced it for many years and the Flying Scot was inducted in the American Sailboat Hall of Fame in 1998. Sandy himself was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2020! Our builder Harry Carpenter is a Life Member of our class and raced regularly at his home club and in several regattas every year around the country. His daughter Carrie and her husband Tyler currently manage the factory in Oakland Maryland and they race regularly in local and national events.
