Scott Young is a winning amateur sailor. He has competed and won for over 35 years in a wide range of one-design classes at all types of venues (coastal and lake).

From Scott’s nominator:

Scott’s passion for competitive sailing started in the early 1970s and actively continues today. He has shown that inland lake sailors can be internationally competitive at all levels. He has done all of this while maintaining an amateur status in the sport – never getting paid to sail or paid within the sailing industry.
