The Flying Ant is a 3.2m long double-handed sailing skiff with a sloop rig comprising main, jib and spinnaker, and the crew on trapeze. Its high performance hull shape makes it a great intermediate dinghy for young sailors wanting to sail with someone else and experience the thrills of performance skiff sailing.
With an asymmetric spinnaker option, the Flying Ant is an excellent training boat leading into the 29er skiff.
The Flying Ant is an ideal boat for sailors from ages 8 through to 16 years, with an optimum combined skipper/crew weight range from 80kg to 110kg.
Clubs currently sailing Ants include, FSC Fremantle Sailing Club, MBSC Mounts Bay, TCYC Rockingham, DBYC Dunsborough, PRSC Albany and Bendigo Yacht Club, Lake Eppalock.
