The Flying Fifteen is a 20ft (6m) two man keelboat and was designed by Uffa Fox in 1947. It has proven to be a popular choice for men and women of all ages, and is sailed all over the world.




The fleet of flying fifteens in Geraldton has grown over the last ten years, to the point where Geraldton is well known for it's flying fifteen competition. Sailors from the yacht club are regular competitors at state, national and an international titles, with Geraldton Yacht also playing host to the state and national championships at various times over the last few years.
