At BYC our sailing season is divided into four series: Spring Sunday, Spring Wednesday, Summer Sunday, and Summer Wednesday. First two races on Sunday are counted for points, and only the first race on Wednesday night is counted for points. One point is awarded for serving on race committee, once per series.
At the end of the year, champions for each series are recognized and trophies are awarded for the lowest combined total points for the entire season.

Flying Scot Fleet 19
Fleet Captain: Ron Craig
The Flying Scot is a very stable 19-foot centerboard sloop used for both family daysailing and racing. The Flying Scot is one of the oldest and largest one-design sailboat classes in the world. Over 6,000 Flying Scots have been manufactured by Flying Scot, Inc. which is located in Deer Park, Maryland. The Flying Scot was inducted in the American Sailboat Hall of Fame in 1998.
At Berlin Yacht Club we have over 20 active Flying Scot Skippers, and we field between 8 and 12 or more boats on a typical Sunday afternoon or Wednesday night race. Our sailors range in age from 14 to 80, and come from all walks of life. New members in the Scot Fleet at BYC find plenty of encouragement and help learning about the Scot and the racing game in a competitive but casual and fun atmosphere.
The Flying Scot is a great boat to try if you are interested in sailboat racing, because it has an open cockpit design with limited control lines, and it is a very forgiving boat. Good used Flying Scots can be found for sale fully race rigged for under $3,500.00.
