    Health insurer ‘’De Friesland’’ and the Harlingen Sail foundation have entered into a partnership around the Tall Ships Races Harlingen. De Friesland will be a vitality partner for the largest event in the Northern Netherlands in 2022. The contract was signed last week.

    De Friesland as a vitality partner
    De Friesland supports this wonderful event of Friesland. Cid Berger, director of Brand, Marketing & Sales De Friesland: “The event gives us the opportunity to show our ambition: Living a vital life together. During the event we organise a vitality square with our partners, with which we get the community moving in a fun and accessible way. We do that with our Monkey Cage XL, among other things.”

    Social ambitions
    De Friesland does not only fulfil its social ambitions with the vitality square. “The unique opportunity that young people are offered to gain a great life experience really appeals to us. That is why we have also adopted four trainees, who will be able to push their limits in July at De Friesland’s expense,” says Cid Berger. Chairman Jan Reier Arends is very pleased that De Friesland is on board as a partner. “Thanks to the partnership, we can fulfil our social ambitions even better. And the fact that a respected party like De Friesland is committed to our event and our objectives also says something about the image and impact that the event has acquired after the two previous editions.”

  7. No Russion ships at Tall Ships Races 2022

    Leave a Comment

    Like much of the world, Harlingen Sail Foundation is shocked and saddened by what is currently happening in Ukraine. We hope the hostilities and violence will end soon.

    In light of these events, we have had discussions with Sail Training International and the other host ports of the Tall Ships Races 2022. Following these discussions, we have unanimously decided that, given the current situation, Russian ships will not be allowed to participate in the event.

    We have made this decision with a heavy heart, precisely because the Tall Ships Races stand for international friendship and connection. However, in view of the act of aggression in Ukraine, we find it highly inappropriate to receive the Russian ships festively in Harlingen in July. We are happy to do this with other impressive ships, which have already signed up.
