About the Sailmaker
Scott Rowland has 32 years of experience in sail design and manufacturing. Scott is also a very talented and keen racing sailor with over 36 years racing experience and is winner of 12 National Championships. Scott grew up around around competitive sailing, as his parents are also multiple National Champions. His parents are the founders of The Sailors' Tailor - manufacturer of 170 One Design Boat covers, sails, and supplies. With the family in the boat business, most of Scott's childhood revolved around sailing and racing. He has been very involved in the local sailing club and junior sailing programs. He first started sailing single handed at the age of 8 in an Optimist Pram. From there he has owned and routinely raced Sunfish, Laser, Snipe, Y-Flyers, and Highlanders winning numerous club, local, regional, and National events. Most summer weekends growing up were spent by Scott grabbing a friend to crew, the family would double deck 2 boats (Mom and Dad in 1 and Scott and crew in the other), and they would travel the midwest hitting as many events as possible. Since age 14, Scott spent all his summers working at The Sailors' Tailor, and after graduating Ohio State in '93, Scott now works full time as computerized cover designer/cutter, webmaster, quality control, shipper, and head sail designer/maker. Around '95 Scott got into RC racing and decided it would be fun to use our computer cutters and 3D sail design software to scale down the winning big boat sail for RC. With already a huge workload at The Sailors' Tailor, Windjammin Sails became the after work division. Scott designs and cuts the RC sails at work, then brings them home to assemble in the evening in his basement sail loft.
