Medemblik, The Netherlands

The Dutch insurer Delta Lloyd has reconfirmed its role as a leading supporter of Dutch Sailing sports and the Delta Lloyd Regatta.
As the leading water sports insurer it will support a number of ambitious sailing organizations for a minimum of four years. In a joint press conference a deal was announced by the chairmen of the Royal Dutch Sailing Federation, the Optimist sailors Holland, the North Sea Regatta and the Delta Lloyd Regatta. The Dutch national team Finn sailor Pieter-Jan POSTMA will receive personal support and become a Delta Lloyd ambassador. Delta Lloyd has guaranteed their support to Dutch water sport until London 2012.

Delta Lloyd Regatta

The Delta Lloyd Regatta is part of the recently introduced ISAF Sailing World Cup series, and will be held in the last week of May. The event is special this year as it is a quarter of a century old since its introduction. It has been the pinnacle of attention to the Olympic sailing world for many years now, which perfectly fits the sponsor ambitions of Delta Lloyd. Finn sailor POSTMA will receive personal sponsorship and will get full support to reach his own goal: to win an Olympic medal in 2012

Long Term Insurances

Paul MEDENDORP, board member to the Delta Lloyd Group, said: "Being the largest water sports insurance company in the Netherlands we want to be a real partner to Dutch aquatic sports. By guaranteeing our commitment for the next four years we want to show our customers and everyone who enjoys aquatic sports that we can offer long term insurances despite these troublesome financial times".
