Dear members,

As you all probably heard by now, The Netherlands is going back into a strict lockdown. This has big implications for our lives, and also for the association.

First maintenance. All maintenance is cancelled for now. We will discuss with the water scouting how to finish our beloved Aegir. But this won't be done via sign-ups. For the O&ECie, we will keep you updated on our discussions with the Water Scouting privately.

Then Sailing. Since our prime minister encourages us to have as less contact with people as possible, and it is in the middle of the winter, we think it is best to cancel all sailing activities until the regulations get looser again. So, no more sailing either on the Valk, Lelievletten or Dinghies.

Furthermore, association evenings. We know this is a very difficult time. For now we will continue with the online activities every week. That way we can still have some social contact. We will keep you updated on the content of these activities, we look forward to them!

Finally, we wanted to mention that we have two trust persons in the association. If you feel lonely, sad or there is anything else you want to talk about, please contact someone! This could be one of our trust persons (they will follow protocol) or someone else, just know that we are here for you!

Thank you for being a part of our association and staying with us even during these difficult times. We hope that we can do more again, as soon as possible.

If you have any questions about the corona rules or you have some suggestions, please e-mail us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Lots of love,

Hey fellow Aquarians,

Last Thursday we had the marvellous, one and only, 2021 Online New Years Drinks! Not only the cool Zeilciecalendar was presented here (it's worth it: go take a peek!.. after you read this), but we also enjoyed a good old fun and weird Kahoot about our fellow lovely Aquanauts. Its content came from the splendid questionnaire the Walcie made for us to fill in beforehand about ourselves. In order to let you taste a bit from the relished ambience, examples of the questions in question were: ‘What is the last thing you googled?’, ‘Help me out, where would you hide the body?’, ‘What is your favourite joke?’, ‘What is your favourite colour (2, 4, 1, 3, 7, 5, 10, 6, 8 or 9)?’ and ‘If you were a flavour, what flavour would you be?’. Romee made very cute and fancy beverage packages for everyone to enjoy during the evening 😊. While we were in our annual Skribbl.io session, even a few of us were drunkenly dancing their hearts out to resemble the vibes of our beloved pre-coronatimes a bit.

Aquamarine kisses,

Last Thursday, the 3rd of December, Aqua celebrated her yearly activity, Pinterbaas! Even with Covid-19, we are going strong. With an adjusted programme, the Walcie was still able to organise a great online activity.

A week before the activity, everyone got a chocolate letter in their mailbox. Attached to that chocolate letter was a piece of paper with the name and address of the person they had to buy a present for. It also included the time on which they had to deliver their present. Each aqua member had a week to buy a present, and they made great use of it!
