About the Author
Simon and Nancy Scott met while cruising in the British Virgin Islands during the mid 70s where some years later, they were married at St. Georges church in Road Town. Simon, a native of the UK, spent time in New Zealand as a teenager, where he raced dinghies and fell in love with sailing and the cruising lifestyle. A career in international marketing took him back and forth between London and New York before a sabbatical to the Virgin Islands aboard the classic John Alden cutter Tomorrow introduced him to the charms of the islands. He later returned to manage a major charter fleet where he was ideally positioned to listen to the needs and concerns of sailors from around the world discovering the delights and challenges of Caribbean cruising.
As Nancy s father was a U.S. naval officer, they lived in many places. Japan was where he taught her to sail dinghies and several moves later they lived in Hawaii where sailing became a major focus in her life. Nancy cruised extensively in the Bahamas in an old, wooden Tahiti Ketch, Ichiban, before sailing into the British Virgin Islands where she met Simon. They moved aboard Zephyrine, their Saxon class sloop, and began what would become their lifetime commitment to the sailing industry.
The first Cruising Guide to the Virgin Islands was published in 1982 and since that time Nancy and Simon, along with their daughters, have continued annual surveys of the cruising area. Nancy continues to oversee the daily operations of publishing guides at the offices of Cruising Guide Publications with her team in Dunedin, Florida.
From the authors:
We thank our readers for their loyalty, suggestions and criticism. It is for you that we write the books, and it is because of you that we are encouraged to improve.
We look forward to seeing you in Virgin waters.

We bought these guides so we could plan ahead and so we would know the layout of the area in advance. Important information on things like good anchoring, dinghy docks, moorings...etc. If the information is incorrect it can and has caused us major difficulties when visiting an area. We are longtime experienced boaters. We compare several sources for information when we visit a destination and do not relay on just one source. I feel the money I spent on these books would have been better spent elsewhere on a different source of information.
