Welcome to the Koninklijke- Holland Beker 2023

It’s our pleasure to announce the 2023 edition of the Koninklijke- Holland Beker regatta, which will take place on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 June 2023 at the Bosbaan regatta Course in Amsterdam.

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 all day (from sunrise till sunset).
  • Saturday: from sunrise till 9:00 and from 18:00 till sunset.
  • Sunday: from sunrise till 9:15 and from 17:00 till sunset.

Traffic rules for training are below. No rescue services are present during training.
