We look forward to you joining us.
Scott’s love of the ocean started very early aboard a succession of family yachts, including Barbarian, which raced in the 1974 and 1975 Sydney Hobart Yacht Races.
After graduating through the dinghy ranks, he won his first spot on a crew in the great race in 1987. Nearly three decades on, he’s lining-up for his thirteenth trip south.
Scott has spent nearly 25 years as a broadcast journalist, including as a business reporter at the ABC. He combines journalistic acumen with his knowledge the marine industry, garnered from involvement in his family’s business as dealers of several brands of well known motor yachts.
He rejects any prejudices aligned to power or sail, preferring to welcome all those who venture out on the sea as souls willing to venture beyond the far horizon – preferably with an EPIRBS and a good watermaker.
Scott is a passionate advocate for the protection of the unique marine environments that encompass our planet, and the creatures inhabiting them that are our responsibility.Get in touch
