Re: Minimum wind for a Flying Scot?
If it's a nice day, go. Light air never killed anyone (I hope??). And chances are it will pick up.
Anyway, since 3 hours ago when you posted, I gather you're out there now. Good decision, have fun, let us know how you liked it. Scots are "medium performance" boats and I think a little better in a breeze than in the really light stuff, but they are decent "chevy Malibu" type-boats all around. So if you don't like the Scots, it's probably 'cause you don't like sailing, and I don't get *that* impression from your post.. ;-)
Anyway, I've raced them in zero to 1 knot, and we'd have *killed* for 4 knots (does this sound like that Monty Python skit?)
