To make these times more pleasant for everyone, we have set up a walking buddy program. So if you want to take a walk and get to know your fellow aqua members at the same time, this is your chance. We divide everyone, who participates, into random pairs and then you can agree on a date together. There is a new round every two weeks. You can register via the event. 

 

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,

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,
