The Dixie Sailing Club promotes the Catalina 22, Flying Scot and MC Scow as the three one-design fleets at the club as well as the open handicap fleet.
The Catalina 22 is a popular sailboat produced by Catalina Yachts. Its hull measures 21 foot 6 inches (6.55 meters), which is rounded up to 22 feet for use in the model’s name. First produced in 1969, it is one of the longest continuously produced sailboats in the world.
The Flying Scot’s high boom, wide side-decks and deep cockpit create an armchair comfort usually reserved for the big keel boats. The Scot’s nimble handling and planing hull, however, provide the close-to-the-water thrill of a small boat. Tiller steering transmits the “feel” of the set, and she can tack on a dime: hallmarks of great racing daysailer.
Whether you want to race your Melges MC or just simply enjoy the boat for what it is – a simple singlehanded daysailer that is fast, responsive and stable! The Melges MC has the best of both worlds. Also, because the Melges MC has such a large and deep cockpit you can take another sailor along with you. Twice the fun!
Unlike many other clubs, DSC does not discriminate against your favorite boat. If it has sails and floats, it can be cruised and raced at DSC. We have a wide range of boats in this fleet from J22s, C25s, to Spindrifts.
