The Kent Island Sailing Team is dedicated to providing youth with the opportunity to benefit from sailing and its inherent life lessons. We believe that sailing can teach youth valuable life lessons including confidence, independence, strategic thinking, teamwork and respect for the environment. We believe that sailing can, and should be open to all regardless of gender, culture, ethnic, or economic background. We believe that many of those who could benefit most do not currently have access to the sailing experience.
To promote the sport of sailing the organization provides boats, boat equipment and instruction in the science of sailing and racing. We also sponsors regattas and events to encourage participation in sailing.
