Master of the Seas
Master of the Seas was founded by Santa Barbara Channel Swimming Association president Scott Zornig, an accomplished open water swimmer. Master of the Seas is a program that provides high-quality open water swimming instruction. Its goal is to give individuals the confidence and skills necessary for enjoyment and top performance in open water events.
Zornig was the 90th person to swim from Catalina Island to Pt. Vincente and the 4th person to swim from Anacapa Island to Ventura on the California mainland. He also completed the Manhattan Island Marathon Swim (28.5 miles) and was a member of a relay which recorded the first swim from San Clemente Island to San Clemente (60 miles).
In 2007, Zornig and 5 teammates circumnavigated Catalina Island in under 24 hours and set a time record. He also completed the first inter-island marathon swim in the California Channel Islands with a 5.6-mile swim from Anacapa Island to Santa Cruz Island in 2007 (2:18). Zornig is a U.S. Masters Swimming All-American and the current holder of five long-distance open-water swimming records.
