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.
