As a very young teen, Scott was dragged to his dad’s boat in New York kicking and screaming. In spite of his initial resistance, Scott was quickly hooked. Within a few years, he found himself teaching boating safety courses and performing emergency tows on the Long Island Sound. Even after his move to the land-locked city of Atlanta, Scott travelled yearly to the Virgin Islands to island-hop with his wife, and also eventually with his kids.
Scott's passion for sailing kicked into high gear in 2016 when moved to the San Francisco Bay Area. After joining Modern Sailing in 2017, he quickly obtained a boat load of ASA certifications. In 2020, he earned his USCG captain’s license and ASA instructor qualifications through classes at MSC. Sailing students will enjoy his plucky sense of humor while learning from his depth of boating experience. Scott remains a frequent charterer with a particular fondness for catamarans.
