History

FLICKAMAROO, one of the original group of Buzzards Bay 15 by Herreshoff Manufacturing Company and Nat Herreshoff. Created to design a boat that could be raced as a one-design fleet in rather than to conduct regattas than using a handicapping system suggested by Beverly Yacht Club
(BYC) in Marion, MA, mebers led by Robert Emmons. A first eleven boats of the Buzzards Bay 15 class
were delivered to members of the Club for the summer racing season of 1899.
