For young sailors and competitors on the New Zealand dinghy circuit, one design manager Derek Scott is not only a familiar face; he is somebody to look up to. Growing up and starting his sailing in Christchurch, Derek represented New Zealand at the Optimist Worlds in 1994 and at the Youth Worlds in the Laser II in 1996 and 1997. He won both the P-Class Tanner and Tauranga Cups in 1995 – a dual achievement that even today is rare. He won the 470 National Champs and the Hobie 16 National Champs in 2006, and placed fifth at the 420 Worlds in Takapuna in 2008. He has also won three Farr 3.7 Nationals, multiple Etchells NZ Nationals and Elliott 5.9 Nationals.

Derek has been involved with North Sails since 1999 and is always eager to help with any one design needs.
