Remembering a Shipmate

Kent Dryden was a Mate on the Sea Scout Ship Tiki Too from Sacramento, California. Kent served his country in the US Army and spent many years in the service of Sea Scouts. Kent passed away after a battle with cancer on September 22, 2014.

Kent was a highly skilled individual, always happy to help at a Sea Scout event, and had a wonderful sense of humor. “Mr. Kent” judged Drill at the Old Salt’s, Sea Farer’s, Ancient Mariner Regattas in WR Area 3. As a former regatta chairman, I can say I never worried about Drill with Kent judging. Kent was fair, knew the event, and above all else, liked working with Sea Scouts.

Kent will be missed by his family, those who sailed with him, and those who called him friend.
