On July 7th, Warriors submitted 2 floats during the  high-profile Cherry Festival. Efforts were directed toward for Great Lakes Warrior Sailing in Traverse City, MI. Their J-22 transformed into a float and they  made a “Remember the Fallen” float, which won them a 1st prize for best float and a cash prize. The program trains using Warrior 43 on most Wednesday nights and will also compete using their new J-22.

Sailors like retired Army nurse Page Sikes, Scott Ford, and Josh Agripino, have gone above and beyond to raise awareness, round-up more donations, encourage local support, and welcome and train new warriors as well as connect and race with the visiting Warriors from the Warrior 53 crew.
