Ros Scott

Real Life: A varied career from tourist management in Crete to finding oil as a Geophysicist in the North Sea; from running a catering business to teaching in secondary school; latterly heading a special educational needs department with a specialism in dyslexia.
Mum of three boys I now am privileged to be able to sit back and watch them in their  ‘real lives’.  One is in sailing high performance management, one Finn sailing and one deciding that it is much more sensible to work on a super yacht.  Living in Scotland I am an enthusiastic hill walker and volunteer for the Loch Lomond National Park.

ISAF/RYA Qualifications:  CRO+; Day Skipper; First aid; VHF/DSC; Powerboat level 2.

Race Management Experience: 10 years on committee, pin or finish boats.  Recording, timing, signals and all paper work. Disciplines include dinghies, catamarans, Olympic Classes, boards and keelboats.

Major Events: World Championships x 5 (ISAF Youth Worlds 2006, RS:X 2009, Dart 18 2010, Laser Radials 2010, Laser Masters 2010); Olympic Test Event 2011; ISAF Sailing World Cup Events x 6 (Sail for Gold, 2006-2011);  National Championships x 10 (Laser and Topper classes 2002-2011).  Eric Twinname 2011.

Sailing and Racing Experience:  Started sailing and working on yachts in Corfu after leaving college and then became involved in dinghy sailing as my boys became keen.  I sailed and raced toppers and lasers at club level and began to be involved in race management as the boys progressed through the RYA squad systems.  Much better than being a binocular mum!!
