For the second time since taking over as supervisor of Riverwalk Landing Piers, Capt. James Scruggs was awarded the distinction of Best Dockmaster. Scruggs grew up boating on the Chesapeake Bay and, under his leadership, York County aims to provide superior customer service to all vessel captains and crew members who pass through Yorktown—whether they are docking pleasure boats, cruise ships, or historical replica tall ships for the day or for a longer length of stay.
