Hempel thanks the city of Aarhus

Hempel gives a watercolour painting to the city of Aarhus, Denmark to commemorate a successful Hempel Sailing World Championships 2018.

To mark Hempel’s title sponsorship of the Hempel Sailing World Championships (HSWC) 2018, Hempel created a 2018 maritime calendar in collaboration with the city of Aarhus. The calendar features seven watercolour paintings incorporating local scenery by the Danish painter Jan Theilgaard Jensen. Together, the seven watercolours include all the boat classes in the HSWC and the calendar is an excellent illustration of the fascinating history of the Sailing World Championships. The calendar has been distributed by the city of Aarhus as well to Hempel’s customers around the world.

On Friday 10 August, Group President & CEO Henrik Andersen handed over an original watercolour from the calendar to Jacob Bundsgaard, Mayor of Aarhus, who received the painting on behalf of the city of Aarhus.

Jacob Bundsgaard thanked Hempel for the painting, which will prove an excellent reminder of the successful Hempel Sailing World Championships.
