“The ocean encircling the central earth on a detailed map of the world, with the Sun’s great canopy over it. There in the waves are the sea-gods: Triton holding his conch-horn, Próteus who constantly changes his shape, and the giant Aegaéon, gripping the monstrous backs of the whales with his hundred arms; Doris along with her daughters, some of them shown to be swimming, while others are resting upon the rocks and drying their green hair or riding along on a fish. The nymphs have different features, but show the likeness that might be expected in sisters.”
Phaëton, Book 2
The closest we can come in Enschede to experiences the thriving sea as described in the metamorphoses is on the Twentekanaal. So Apollo has reached out to D.Z.V. Euros, the sailing association of the UT, and together we will organise an entire afternoon of sailing in Enschede! Afterwards, we’ll enjoy a barbecue together at the Watersportcomplex to share our experiences over some lovely food.
