The Flying 15 is unique amongst the other boats sailed at the club due to its keel and large sail area. The crane facilities for launching and recovering mean you can reasonably expect to go sailing without even getting your feet wet, but on a windy day, with a total of 300 ft2 (28 m2) of sail a Flying 15 will plane (with spray going absolutely everywhere) proving that it is a fast boat, and it is not unknown for a 15 to capsize guaranteeing you some exciting sailing.
The Flying 15 class is an active class with many open meetings. South Cerney Sailing Club makes a good base to hone your skills at, so that you can enter open meetings and large events such as Skandia Cowes Week, Poole Week or Falmouth Week if you feel like the occasional bit of coastal sailing.
