Welcome to everything Flying 15 at Blackpool & Fleetwood Yacht Club
The Flying 15 is a 2 person small keelboat designed in 1947 by Uffa Fox, it provides exhilarating sailing and many characteristics of a dinghy with the added stability a keel offers.
The boats are easy to transport, reasonably priced to buy and maintain whilst offering access to a very supportive and competitive fleet. The Flying 15 fleet at Blackpool & Fleetwood Yacht Club offers a huge depth of experience and support to all of its members and always welcomes new sailors. The boat's versatility and ease of use mean that people of all ages can sail and compete in the fleet, we currently have from children to great grandparents doing so. The fleet ranges from international sailors to social club sailors, families going for an afternoon cruise to the club hosting its own open event on the UK circuit, there is as much or as little for you to take part in as you wish.
Although there have been a couple of Flying Fifteens at B&FYC over the years it was only at the end of summer 2016 when Mike Preston bought 3641 that the scene exploded, within a years' time there were 5, another year 10. This only happened due to the great fit the boat was to the club and its members. The fleet enjoys one design racing which offers a different experience to handicap racing be that there is no time adjustment after finishing, so if you're first to cross the finish line, you've won!
