For the third year in a row, Markel is proud to navigate alongside Warrior Sailing, an organization that helps steer veterans towards healing, camaraderie, and newfound purpose through the power of sailing. Markel’s sponsorship provides financial support to the Warrior Sailing program to assist with changing the lives of wounded, ill, or injured veterans therapeutically through sailing.

This announcement comes as the program enters another summer of sailing in the Great Lakes, with the Warrior Sailing team gearing up to participate in the Ugotta Regatta, hosted by the Little Traverse Yacht Club, and the Red Fox Regatta, hosted by the Charlevoix Yacht Club. These races truly amplify Warrior Sailing’s impact and connects with passionate communities in the Great Lakes region.

“We are thrilled to continue our collaboration with Markel as we enter our third year together,” said BenPoucher, national director of Warrior Sailing. “Our shared mission of bringing smiles to the faces of wounded, ill, or injured veterans through the therapeutic power of sailing has been incredibly rewarding. We are immensely honored that Markel has chosen to stand by our side, supporting our team, our veterans, and our ongoing efforts to make sailing accessible to those who truly benefit from its therapeutic qualities.”

“Markel has a rich history of backing organizations at the local, national, and global levels that resonate with the essence of the Markel Style, said Rob Varnell, marine underwriting manager and US Army veteran at Markel. “It is with great privilege that we join forces with Warrior Sailing, an organization that not only contributes to the marine community but also pays tribute to those who have bravely served and sacrificed to safeguard our liberties.”

Sailing Towards a Brighter Future:

Markel’s continued sponsorship goes beyond brand benefits; it’s about investing in the well-being of veterans, providing them with a supportive community and a platform to heal and thrive. We look forward to embarking on another year of empowering veterans through the Warrior Sailing mission.
