Fleet 36 is a group of sailors enjoying one design racing on an easy to sail and forgiving boat. Generally we race on Saturday afternoons a couple of times a month throughout the year. Race dates can be found on the squadron calendar. The fleet welcomes sailors of all abilities and our races are scored in both Championship and Challenger divisions.
As much as we enjoy racing on the bay we equally enjoy socializing after the races sharing tips on performance as well as talking about our shared sailing experiences. The Flying Scot is ideally suited for sailing on Sarasota Bay. At 19′ the boat is easily sailed with a crew of 2-3 people. When not racing the large cockpit will hold a good crowd for a day sail or evening cruise. Many in our fleet trailer their boats for opportunities to sail in District and National regattas. Every other year our fleet and Sarasota Sailing Squadron host the Flying Scot Midwinter Regatta, hosting a fleet of about 60 boats. There is lots going on with this group.
