Welcome to the Australian Flying Fifteen Association website.
“The Original Sports Boat”
A Flying Fifteen is the original sports boat, as it is a planing keelboat.
There are more than 4000 Flying Fifteen’s around the world, and are suitable for racing on a variety of sea, estuaries, lakes and rivers.
In Australia there are 15’s in most states and you can find contacts under the Fleets tab.
There is an annual National Championship where sailors compete for the Coweslip Trophy presented by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. In addition most states have their own state championship as well as regular club racing.
“On the global scene every second year there is a World Championship which rotates between Continents. On the in-between years there is a European Championship.”.
