Sailing Club of Washington is Chartered by the Flying Scot Sailing Association (FSSA)
as Fleet 203 in the Capital District. Under this charter SCOW members
who are also FSSA members can participate in sanctioned events using
SCOW boats. SCOW owns and races six Flying Scots.
There are two, frequently updated calendars that summarizes Flying Scot races. The first one contains SCOW run and SCOW-sanctioned Flying Scot races (you may view it in a web browser, or access it from your preferred calendar application). The second calendar contains Flying Scot races and regattas in the region (view it in a web browser or load it into another application).
