Pressletter Royal Spring Dive 2013
On the last Thursday of March every year since 2009 we celebrate the end of winter and beginning of spring with a Spring Dive in Rotterdam. This year the Spring Dive is in emphasis of the impending coronation of Prince Willem Alexander and Princess Maxima on 30 April. Besides the “Royal” Spring Dive we organize on the last Thursday of March every year the Rondje Noordereiland Pubcrawl and I LOVE ROTTERDAM.
(Spring Dive start at 19:00)
With Spring Dive we celebrate the end of winter and the beginning of summer. The Spring Dive ao. also our first open water swim training for the King Of The Rivers – Netherlands. Swimmers from the Rotterdam Swim and Amsterdam Swim will attend this weekly training.
We organise our annual Spring Dive for the first time near the Waterpaviljoin in the Rijnhaven with the InHolland Student association Pisculentis. Participants may register on March 28 from 18:00 in the society of Pisculentis at the Posthumalaan 90 (metro Wilhelminaplein)
For Clean Water
With our annual Spring Dive we ask attention to clean water. The proceeds from the Spring Dive go every year to Swim for Water. With this charity we support clean water projects worldwide.
100 liters of beer and a pool
To celebrate this collaboration with Pisculentis we award them if they can bring 100 students to the start. If they succeed they will get 100 liters of beer and a pool. Participants count as student if they jump into the water with a tie (also women).
In order to bring Rotterdam and the rest of the Netherlands already a bit in the mood for the upcoming coronation of Prince Willem Alexander and Princess Maxima on 30 April to King and Queen of the Netherlands, is the theme of this year’s Spring Dive Royalty. So come on March 28 dressed as Royalty (preferably dressed as Princess Maxima and Prince Willem Alexander) with crowns and lots of orange and jump with us into spring.
