Flying Fish Arctos

Flying Fish Arctos


Flying Fish Arctos is the flagship yacht in the Flying Fish offshore training fleet. Arctos is a strong and powerful cutter rigged yacht that was built to race around the world. The crew of this boat are mostly paying amateurs from around the world out looking for adventure, making this 55 footer ideal for the crew and race. However, they are joined by more experienced crew, including this year's skipper, Duncan Macalister.

The 2010 team took first place in PHS and last year, a different crew sailed the boat to sixth overall under PHS and second in Division 2, so the 2012 crew have a lot to live up to and a real challenge on their hands.
