Scott Young J/80 Worlds Interview

J/80s- Scott Young

For those of you who sailed the J/80 Worlds, Scott Young provides some interesting insights regards the fun, excitement and challenges of racing a World Championship against a stellar fleet.  For those who wished they were there, Scot Spurlin's interview from Austin, TX provides entertaining and educational perspectives on what it's like to sail a J/80 in the extraordinary conditions the fleet experienced over the week long event.  As an interesting aside, many people asked "who" Scott was as many J/80 sailors had never heard of him before.  In short, he was a two-time College All-American at the University of Texas- Austin, is a US Mallory Cup Champion (emblematic of the US Men's National Championship in keelboats) and is also a Laser Masters Champion.  Enough said.  Watch Scott Young Video Interview here.
