Vero Beach, FL – May 1, 2024 – YSF Community Sailing is thrilled to announce the arrival of two brand-new Flying Scots, delivered directly from the manufacturer to our location in Vero Beach, FL. The sailboats, expertly crafted by Flying Scot Inc. in Deer Park, MD, were personally delivered by Tyler Andrews, who co-owns Flying Scot Inc. with his wife, Carrie.  Flying Scots are proudly manufactured in America.

These exciting additions to our fleet mark a significant milestone for YSF Community Sailing and represent our ongoing commitment to providing exceptional sailing experiences to our community members. The Flying Scots are renowned for their performance, stability, and versatility, making them ideal vessels for sailors of all levels.

Family & Friends Fundraising Event to Support Youth & Adaptive Programs

To celebrate the arrival of our new Flying Scots, we will be hosting a special Family & Friends Guided Sailing Event on May 11, 2024, from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Proceeds from the Family & Friends event go directly to sustaining

our free youth and adaptive sailing programs, which benefit residents of Indian River County.  These vital programs are especially in need of funding at this time of year. Guests will have the opportunity to experience the thrill of sailing on these magnificent boats under the guidance of our experienced instructors while helping us fund these programs.
