Flying Fifteen

Flying Fifteen

Designed in 1947 by the legendary Uffa Fox, the Flying Fifteen has maintained its reputation as an exciting, competitive two person racing boat. The lines still have a timeless quality and the clever keel shape allows easy launching & retrieval without cranes or lifting of keels. The Flying Fifteen is a fun, fast and exhilarating boat to sail by crew combinations of all sizes, genders and ages.
The Flying Fifteen has a well established international fleet structure and is sailed in a number of countries around the world spanning lake, estuary and sea venues. The class has a strong international class association, Flying Fifteen International (FFI), which coordinates events, represents the class, circulates a yearbook and regular communications to all members.
