Re: Flying Scot - did I buy the wrong boat?

I have never sailed a flying scott so I wont comment on the boat specifically. As for your ability and therefor safety, with time and practice you will become a skilled sailor. The trepidation you feel now will pass. As was mentioned earlier it will likely be a big help to bring a more experienced sailor with you. Point out the areas that give you concern. It might as simple as sailing with a reef until your more comfortable.

Best of luck and don't hesitate to ask the group here for help. There is a wealth of knowledge around this place.
