Regatta

Welcome to the Koninklijke- Holland Beker 2024

It’s our pleasure to announce the 2024 edition of the Koninklijke- Holland Beker regatta, which will take place on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd June 2024 at the Bosbaan regatta Course in Amsterdam.

After receiving multiple request we have extended our entry deadline to Monday May 27th till 11:59 PM. We are aware that the registration system doesn’t show the adjusted deadline, but be assured that all entries will be accepted till the new entry deadline. After the deadline late entries are possible with a couple restrictions as indicated on our website.

Traffic Rules & Training

Regatta Traffic Rules during racing

The Bosbaan is the oldest artifical rowing lake in the world and is therefore constrained in its size. Warming up, racing and cooling down take place on the same stretch of water. To avoid collisions resulting in personal and material damage, it is of the greatest importance to adhere to the traffic regulations. Violation of these rules can lead to a yellow card according to FISA’s Rules of Racing.

In case of fairness decisions, the traffic rules might be changed during the regatta. Further announcements on this will be made via our website and the umpires at the boathouse area.

Training is possible on the following times:

  • Friday: from 6:00 till 9:00 and from 15:30 till 17:30*

Clothing and oars

In accordance with the rules of racing of WORLD ROWING (Rule 39 and its Bye-Laws):

Rowers of a composite crew shall wear either;

  • Each member of the crew shall wear the uniform and identification of his own club: every rower wears their club uniform (identical per club). Undershirt, legging, socks and hats must be either identical (identical for the whole crew) or identical for each club (for crew members of the same club); this means same colours and length. This means that composite crews can wear their own club uniform, but needs to be the same per club (eg. if there are 2 or more of the same club in one boat, they need to have the same club uniform and under clothing / hats the same, people from other clubs in that boat can wear their own uniform).
  • Or all crew member shall wear identical uniforms and identifications: Composite crews are also allowed to wear the same uniform – not necessarily club uniform – as long as the implementation is fully identical.

The oars must be completely identical for the entire crew. It is not obliged to use blades in the registered colours of your club.
