Flying Eleven

About the Flying Eleven

The Flying Eleven is designed as high performance racing skiff suitable for 12 to 18 year olds. It is an excellent a follow-on boat for Sabots, Manly Juniors & other junior classes. The class is very strong around Australia, with National regattas attracting fleets of over 100 boats. In the last few years alone, over 100 new boats have been launched – a statistic unmatched by most other dinghy classes. High performance sailing is fast becoming the goal of a great many dinghy sailors with the appearance of 49ers as an Olympic class. The Flying Eleven is a logical step in the transition between junior classes and prepares young sailors for classes such as 470s, 29ers, Moths, 13s or even 49ers.
