BIOGRAPHY

After missing out on London 2012 selection to the most decorated Olympic sailor of all time, Sir Ben Ainslie, Giles Scott has dominated the Finn class in the build-up to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Scott was unbeaten for three years from 2013, a run that included victories at the 2014 Sailing World Championships and twice at Rio 2016 Test Events with the most recent coming in August 2015.

In the lead up to the Games Scott continues to impress and won Finn silver at the Princess Sofia Trophy, Palma in April 2016.

Born in Huntingon, Scott has been sailing at international level from the age of 16 following his Youth World Championship debut in 2002 and since then has gone on to win World Championship gold at youth level and twice in the senior ranks - all in the Finn class.
