Flying Tern sailboat

I just learned that the little 14'' boat I bought at a yard sale a couple of years ago is a Flying Tern, made by the Van de Stadt company of The Netherlands. My partner and I have been sailing and restoring the boat for two summers now. Are there other Flying Tern sailors out there? We''d like to make contact, share tips, learn where to buy sails, etc. It''s a sporty, fast little boat, though a little unstable. We love it.

Flying Tern sailboat

I own a Flying Tern. It has been in the family over 20 years. I love the way it handles and do not consider it unstable. It does have a problem with weather helm in that the tiller can''t always handle the wind. We have never turned it over but have filled it with water several times.

My question to you , it what kind of trailer do you have. Our Cox boat trailer was recently totalled and we are having a hard time finding a replacement. Any suggestions on makes?

Exclamation Flying Tern Associations

Hi There, There is little information to be found about Terns, or Sterns as they are known in Holland. There is a flying tern association which can be found at flyingternusa.org

There is also a yahoo group for the US flying tern association which can be found under this site.

Happy Sailing!

Gretchen

Maia-

Chances are pretty likely they don't own or care about flying terns any more, since their posts are SEVEN YEARS OLD. Please check dates before responding to a thread. Also, I suggest you read the post in my signature to help you get the most out of your time on sailnet. Welcome to sailnet...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

A thread has value as an archive of information and when someone can add to that information they should be encouraged to do so. It is not just a private conversation with the original poster. The additional information on the Flying Tern is of value to me! Thanks Maia.

I agree. I had not heard of these boats before, and checked out the site mentioned above. They look like neat little boats.

I built a mast for a Flying Tern about 20 years ago and had an opportunity to sail it several times. Great little boat. I had heard from the owner that it was an Uffa Fox design but had never been able to confirm this.

CalebD will become famous soon enough
Ya gotta love SailingDog and ya gotta' wonder how many of his 35K + posts have been reminding people that the thread they replied to are MORE THEN X YEARS old. His advice about things nautical is always valuable but when he is working for the 'old thread posting' police he is more of a barking SailingDog then a helping one.
I belong to several groups and many of them are slow and obscure enough that no one cares how old a post is as long as it is related to the original post (moyermarine.com comes to mind, where they chastised me for posting an SD 'old thread' post on someone).
Apologies for the thread hijack.
Back to your regular Flying Tern network...
