Dear members,


The Netherlands is in a lockdown. This has big implications for our lives, and also for the association.

First Sailing. From the 4th of March, all boats can be sailed again. Only training is allowed, so sailing for pleasure is not allowed. On the Valk and on the Aegir that is allowed with three and on the ISO it is allowed with two, three is a bit much. Nothing changes for the laser 1. When you are ashore you always keep a distance of 1.5 meters from each other, even if you have just sailed together. If you can answer yes to one of the questions in the RIVM health check, you cannot go sailing.

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,
