A number of EYC members are looking to purchase a used Flying Scot for racing and family use for 2012. Late summer and fall is the best time to get a bargain on a used Scot or other sailboat! The Flying Scot is the third-largest one-design sailboat class in the US, so there are always lots of used Scots available at all price points.
Keep an eye on the Flying Scot Sailing Association for-sale pages at http://www.fssa.com/ht/shop/shop-caveat-emptor.htm and at http://www.fssa.com/fsforum2/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=6
Or do a periodic Google search, or set a Google Alert for “Flying Scot Sailboat”.
