Sponsoring J/22 Class DSWZ Broach

Since 2014, BigRoll Shipping has sponsored three J/22 student teams of DSWZ Broach, the competitive sailing association of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft).

BigRoll happily contributes to the development of sailing talent. Water and technique are the elements that attract BigRoll to sailing. The company recognizes that ambition and team spirit are vital to both BigRoll and for the sailors of Broach. Thanks to this sponsorship, the Delft students can pursue their sporting ambitions in the competitive J/22 Class.

The three sailboats of the BigRoll Shipping/TUDelft team are easily recognizable by their red genoas and their colourful boats and main sails, which are similar to BigRoll's corporate identity. The three J22s sail under the names "BigRoll Barentsz”, “BigRoll Bering” and "BigRoll Beaufort”. The first two are named after two of BigRoll’s MC Class vessels, currently under construction.
