sail on

It is with deep regret that I inform you of the passing of William “Scott” Piper III, M.D. of Miami Florida on Monday, December 2, 2019.

Scott Piper was a world class sailor, with 5 circumnavigations to his name, with a detailed memory of the hundreds of people and places he had encountered in

his life time. Scott was the 2008 recipient of the Blue Water Medal and was planning his next Atlantic crossing with his wife Mary on “Pipedream IX” at the time of his passing.

Scott included 100s’ of “friends” in his adventures and inspired sailors and non-sailors alike to push themselves to live their lives to the fullest.
