Our harbour master dives into the past with his memories of the former Wilhelmina Swimming Pool, the only saltwater swimming pool in the area. From 1946 until 1974 everyone from Breskens learned to swim in this renowned open-air pool. It was also the home base of the local swimming club Scheldestroom, which many youth joined after obtaining their swimming diploma. Part of the marina is now located on the site of the swimming pool. Many residents of Breskens think back to this swimming pool with nostalgia.
