Scott Smit

Fleet Manager

As a boy, Scott enjoyed sailing the San Francisco Bay on his grandfather’s Cal 30. Sailing camp in Belvedere introduced him to dinghy skippering and sailing basics. After returning to California from university in landlocked Colorado, Scott took up sailing and other marine activities.

At Modern Sailing, Scott prioritizes fleet maintenance activities to keep the boats in tip-top shape. He has the need for speed, so he likes to sail in high wind conditions. Giving orders to his crew members and making navigation decisions are his favorite parts of being a skipper. Scott hopes to gain further sailing experience and knowledge at Modern Sailing so that he can charter a yacht in the Mediterranean Sea someday.

Testimonials

  • John Clark

    Every aspect of Modern Sailing - training, syllabus, course materials, quality of the boats, quality of the instructors, and the very friendly and helpful staff - exceeded my expectations. Modern Sailing has a first class sailing program in an environment with challenging winds and currents. I look forward to coming back to charter a boat and certainly plan to continue my sailing training.

  • Mike, Santa Rosa, California

    All of the courses and my instructors (JT and Stan) were extremely professional and full of knowledge and experience. I found I was able to learn from their experiences beyond the scope of the courses, and look forward to future opportunities to do so. I would highly recommend Modern Sailing to anyone.

  • Molie M

    After complete two courses and having a variety of instructors, I can safely say, this is place to go if you want to learn to sail. The fleet is equally diverse and exciting. The office staff does a great job of getting you plugged into the sailing community. Fantastic group of folks!
