Euros Sailing is University of Twente's sailing association. Everyone who wants to enjoy sailing is welcome at our association. We are a versatile association, we aim to practise as many different aspects of the sport of sailing as possible. With Euros you can combine relaxed sailing weekends, competitive sailing and enjoy drinks with the other members of the association. Even people who have never sailed before are welcome to join our association!
You may have noticed already that there isn't a lot of water suitable for sailing around Enschede. During drinks in Enschede we sometimes put some small boats in the channel next to the Water Sports Complex, but most of our sailing takes place outside Enschede. We sail in the beautiful provice Friesland, on the IJsselmeer and the Wadden Sea and our sea sailing yacht has sailed almost every sea between Norway and Spain. These sailing trips are hard to combine with studing during the weeks, so most of our sailing events take place in the weekends. Each year many events are pland during the weekends for which every member can subscribe, so you can step on the train with your fellow association members on friday evening and return on sunday evening after a great sailing weekend. Afterwards we take all the great stories to our own bar in Enschede where you can enjoy a drink on every first and third wednesday of the month.
With Euros, you can enjoy great sailing events, of which the participation fees are much lower than with regular sailing camps or sailing holidays. As a member you can take our boats for a much lower price than at a regular boat rental company.
Are you already a capable sailor or do you want to learn sailing, but you're not sure whether a membership of Euros is something for you? Feel free to subscribe for one of our introduction weekends! Becoming a member is not obligatory.
