Who we are
D.Z. Euros is Enschede's student sailing association. We are the oldest association at the University of Twente, starting at the university’s founding. Throughout the years we've grown as an association, offering with a large, varied fleet for our members to sail. At Euros you can enjoy many different styles of sailing, including: sea sailing and racing on our 9m “Jaffa,” cruising on the Wadden Sea and the Dutch province Friesland on our two small cabin cruisers, performance sailing on our Laser 2s or cruising around on our home ship, the 25-meter long Ebenhaëzer.
Almost every Wednesday we have drinks at the Sevende Camer, our bar at the University Water Sports Complex. In the winter we maintain our fleet on Mondays in our large storage facility.
Our spring introduction programme gives you the opportunity to get to know our association, our members, and the sport of sailing. We will have some of our fleet of boats along with Falcons (6.5m gaff head-rigged sloops). During this weekend, Sneek will be our base, from which we will plan a nice route.
The costs for the entire introduction programme will be €60,-. This fee pays for the boats, food, your accommodation, and other organization costs. The food on the introduction drink and barbecue are also included in this fee. The only thing not included in this fee is for drinks at the bar.
The spring introduction is on the 25-27 of May. We will take the train towards Sneek on Friday evening and you will be back in Enschede on Sunday evening. On 23 May, the Wednesday evening before the weekend, we will have an intro drink at the Sevende Camer, our association’s bar in the Watersports Complex. We’ll also have a barbecue on the Wednesday evening of May 30.
