The Finnish Naval Reserve
The Finnish Naval Reserve (in Finnish Sininen Reservi ry, in Swedish Marinreserven rf) is a registered non-profit parent organization for the Finnish voluntary reservist associations connected to the Finnish Navy or the Finnish Coast Guard. We have currently 37 member associations that in their turn have approximately 5500 individual members.
The Finnish Naval Reserve fosters cooperation between its member associations, bringing together voluntary naval reservists from across the country and sharing information on topical issues relating to voluntary defence. This mission is reflected in our core values – cooperation, safety and know-how for a better society.
Our activities include a variety of events, such seminars and competitions that offer an arena for contacts and communality. In providing voluntary training, we collaborate with the National Defence Training Association (Maanpuolustuskoulutusyhdistys), of which we are a member. In addition, our member associations operate a fleet of vessels for naval training purposes. We also support building international relationships by training liaison officers.
