Marketing leaders take to the high seas in Southampton Sailing Week’s Gallagher Cup

Gareth Miller - 9th July 2021

On Thursday, Carswell Gould competed in The Gallagher Cup, part of Southampton Sailing Week, where it finished on the podium, in third place overall. The winning yacht was crewed by the Gallagher Insurance team. With such a big part of Carswell Gould’s history being forged in the marine industry, it was an obvious choice for the agency to get behind this particular initiative from sports event firm Rees Leisure.

Carswell Gould’s crew was led by Creative Director, Ed Gould, who has a distinguished history of taking part in challenge events on the water, these include the Gore-Tex Arctic Challenge, where he was part of a crew who took a rigid inflatable boat (RIB) from the UK to the arctic circle. The team was made up of CEOs and marketing directors of global brands from the agency’s client base.

Carswell Gould Happy Clients

It was so exciting to experience sailing with the team from Carswell Gould, like every occasion they make it fun and informative and with tons of value. We even came up with some great ideas for our next campaign.
