The goals of the USF sailing team coaches are to continue the tradition of strong team performances nationally, foster leadership skills in the experienced sailors, improve the skill levels of all sailors, recruit new members to ensure the future success of the team, promote the sport of sailing to the entire student body, and to develop a plan for replacing the current fleet of boats with new ones.
