…a great day sailing with Scott

We had a great day sailing with Scott (and first mate Laurel) on his beautiful yacht, Plan B! Both the boat and captain handled the gusty winds with poise. We highly recommend this experience to travelers and sailors of all age and experience. Best way to see Tampa Bay!

Captain Scott is a great teacher

Captain Scott is a great teacher, what started out as a 4 hour introduction to sailing, turned into me getting certified in 101-basic keel boat and 103-coastal cruising. I now feel confident that I can sail the 30ft sailboat that my wife and I just purchased last year but havent had a chance to sail yet. It was my very first sail, I fell in love with it, I wish I could have started 30+ years sooner. Thanks Capt Scott

Highly recommended!!

This experience was a blast! Captain Scott and his 1st mate, Cat, were fantastic hosts and instantly made me feel incredibly welcome!

DON’T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY!!!!

If you want to sail—DON’T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY!!!! This was an awesome experience that was made extra special by Scott and his 1st mate Laurel. We were truly in the hands of an of an expert and an amazing teacher who was both kind and patient, and allowed us to participate in all the activities of sailing. We truly feel spoiled sailing (our first sailing adventure) in Scott’s amazing 45’ sailing yacht. Could not have hand-picked a better captain, sailing vessel or experience. Totally worth every penny, and hope to experience this again with Scott the next time we are in St Pete. Thanks so much.

Laura

…fun and engaging…

We went on an introductory lesson with Scott as our captain. He made us feel welcome on his boat and made the whole experience fun and engaging. We had a chance to steer the boat, operate the sails and practice basic maneuvers such as tacking and jibing, as well as getting to know different parts of the boat. We walked away feeling inspired to try to learn sailing in-depth and can’t wait to take our next class with Scott!!!
