(March 23, 2010) Scott Easom had a superb racing year in 2009. After overseeing the building and rigging of the King 40 SOOZAL, he joined the sailing team to win Key West, the Pineapple Cup, the Miami Grand Prix, the IRC Pacific Coast Championship, and the Big Boat Series. He sailed with Roy Disney on Pyewacket to the overall win at the HOAG regatta, and then sailed his own boat, the Moore 24 8 Ball, to the Pacific Coast Championships and the Moore 24 National Championship at Lake Huntington, CA.

In fact, Scott won every regatta he sailed in the Moore 24 class, including the tricky Delta Ditch run overall, defeating 150+ boats. Hes kicked off 2010 in great style, recently wining the 3 Bridge Fiasco overall, defeating 359 other boats. Michelle Slade talks to Scott about his career and the sport hes extremely passionate about.

I've seen 8Ball up close on her trailer, the workmanship and finish are amazing.

Great interview/article on Scottie. I sailed with him a few times in the 80's & 90's and learned a lot.
