Flying 11

A fantastic class for young sailors, with a jib, main and spinnaker.

Aimee's Flying 11The Flying Eleven is an exciting, high performance, light weight racing dinghy, competitively sailed by 2 people of a preferable combined crew weight between 75 and 115kgs.

Ages generally range from 10 to 18yrs but there is no restriction to parental or senior participation.

Due to the commitment of the Association, its' constitution and state and club coaching programmes, new arrivals step up to highly competitive sailing quickly and champions are constantly being fed to world and other nationally known classes - 29ers, 13ft skiffs, Cherubs, 12ft skiffs, 16ft skiffs, 18ft skiffs, 420s, 470s, Moths, 49ers and other international 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 these and the junior classes.
