Canada Ocean Racing was founded and launched by Scott Shawyer, a successful businessman, engineer and adventurer. With a love and passion for the outdoors, Scott has completed numerous extreme adventures and is no stranger to pushing himself to the limits.
A downhill ski racer, a triathlete, and a lifelong sailor; Scott is now focusing on a new challenge, the biggest in offshore sailing; the solo, non-stop, unassisted race round-the-world race, The Vendée Globe.
The combination of Scott’s drive, energy, business acumen, zest for adventure, analytical mindset and stamina are all fundamental character elements that have led him to take on what will be his toughest challenge yet and become a Vendée Globe skipper.
