Scott Corder, Modern Sailor and Now Boat Owner!

December 30, 2020

Scott Corder's affinity for the ocean began in his youth with surfing and scuba diving. A diving charter aboard a sailboat with a friend in the tropics ignited his interest in sailing and inspired him to join Modern Sailing in July 2017. That September, he completed ASA 101, Basic Keelboat Sailing and went on to become a very active student and club member.

In 2018, Scott continued his sailing education and completed ASA 103, Basic Coastal Cruising, ASA 104, Bareboat Chartering, and the Recreational Race Clinic. He rapidly advanced his skills by sailing in 15 races, including the Leukemia Cup Regatta. 2019 was another a very big year for Scott, with completion of ASA 105, Coastal Navigation, ASA 106, Advanced Coastal Cruising, ASA 107, Celestial Navigation, ASA 114, Cruising Catamaran, the Electronic Piloting and Radar Clinic, a Half Moon Bay Expedition, and 8 races. As a result of his dedication to his sailing education, Scott received MSC's 2019 Top Student Award!

In 2020, Scott's passion for sailing took on increasing energy. He purchased his first sailboat, a 2007 Tayana 48 DS named Seahorse, and recently began living aboard full-time. Scott and his boat are ready to sail to Mexico - he only needs to find two or three good crew members to join him for the journey. (If you are interested in crewing with Scott to Mexico, please contact us and we will get you connected.)

It has been rewarding for MSC staff and instructors to assist and witness Scott's remarkable progress as he sailed full circle from novice student to experienced skipper and boat owner in only three short years. Congratulations, Scott!

    The vessel was clean and in fine condition - very nice boat for training, well-equipped.

    Captain Jeff Cathers is really cool. I had such a great time on the Farallones Day Trip. It was actually my very best day of 2020. Thank you so much for coordinating the trip.

    The class was terrific. I know you must get many compliments about your sailing instructors...But I must tell you that Robert is outstanding. Having taught SCUBA, I really appreciate the way he is so sensitive to all on board, dealing with each so well, knowing quickly their strengths and weaknesses making each feel special and cared for.
