The Aegon Koninklijke-Holland Beker is an international regatta according to the FISA’s Rules of Racing. Please take notice of the remarks below, which highlight the possible differences with the national regattas you compete in. For a complete overview of the rules, see the section on Rules and Regulations.

  • FISA rules on advertising spaces apply. Boat names are excluded from the advertising spaces.
  • For all events, boats will be selected for boat weighing. Each team is responsible that his boat at least meets the minimum weight. The boat weighing centre is located in the athletes zone opposite of the pontoons and will be indicated there. The boat weighing is opened from 9 a.m. on Friday and from 7 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
  • The minimum weight for all coxwains is 55 kg (according to FISA rules), with a maximum dead weight of 15 kg.

  • In contrast to previous years, all events will use FISA rules – including the Freshmen’s eights and fours and the Development fours and doubles.

Clothing

In accordance with the rules of racing of FISA:

  • Composite crew: 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.
the Aegon – Koninklijke Holland Beker Regatta this year also allows:
  • Crew wears same uniform – not necessarily club uniform – the implementation must then be fully identical.

Rules of Racing

FISA’s Rules of Racing apply to the Aegon Koninklijke-Holland Beker. The additional provisions specific to the 2018 edition of the Aegon Koninklijke-Holland Beker can be found here.

Traffic Rules

Regatta Traffic Rules

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: Traffic Rules

In case of fairness decisions, the traffic rules might be changed during the regatta. Further announcements on this will be made during the team managers meetings.

Parking of boat trailers

During the regatta it is strictly forbidden to park your boat trailer in front of the boat sheds or in the finish area. Parking lots for these boat trailers is at the marked parking area.

Loading and unloading of the trailes is, however, allowed at the finish area. Directly after the unloading the trailers need to be parked at the special boat trailer parking area. The designated parking area is marked in this map.
