With our company founder Jan Brand’s passion for sailing, it’s no surprise that Brunel is associated with the sport. The challenge, excitement and teamwork of sailing reflects our culture perfectly; after all, teamwork means people – and people are at the heart of what we do.

In 1997 we sponsored the world’s longest globe-circling regatta – the exciting Whitbread Race. Then in 2005 we sponsored the Brunel team in the Volvo Ocean Race, which attracts media from all over the world. And again in 2014, we were the main sponsor of a team in the Volvo Ocean Race, showing that we’re always up for an exciting international challenge, both on and off the water!
