Retired Navy SEAL John Owens started The Naked Warrior Project as a memorial to his brother and fellow Navy SEAL, Ryan Owens, who was killed in action on Jan. 29, 2017 — an event widely covered by the media.

The Naked Warrior Project, a nonprofit organization, and 26 North Yachts have teamed up to host the first annual Naked Warrior Project Fishing Tournament, set to take place March 9 at the Sands Harbor Resort and Marina in Pompano Beach, Fla.

All proceeds from the tournament will support The Naked Warrior Project’s mission to memorialize fallen Navy SEALs, to help injured Navy SEALs in their recovery and to provide support to their families through education, connecting families and building memorials.

“I began this organization to ensure that the memory of these brave warriors and their sacrifices are never forgotten,” said John Owens in a statement. “As Americans we owe a great debt to the members of our armed forces who dedicate their lives to defend our nation. We are committed to memorializing courageous sacrifice and providing support to their families.”

Cost per vessel before March 1 is $450, and $500 after.
