This weekend the first-year competition ploegen will get to get back in the boat, and not just any place - we are all going to the Willem Alexander Baan! Where normally wedstrijd-rowers race, the first-year teams get to take a sneak peek at this important race course. In addition, the Baan Eight team will also start. And as a fun number we will also see the compocie shining on the water!

De wedstrijd

For the C4+ ploegen, the race consists of a 1000 meter pre-race and a 2000 meter final. So you row twice regardless.

The preliminary race is a time-trial with a doorstart. The kamprechter will tell you 100 meters before the start that you may start with "bouwen".

The final is with fixed start and with 8 ploegen boord-aan-boord. 

The course 

The WAB is a challenging course. It can be quite windy and incredibly busy.

This weekend both the Stuurboord- and the Bakboordbokaalploegen will start. That's a lot of rowers!!! Keep that in mind. Also, you have to row far up for the 1000m ( i.e. 3000 meters). So you have to start to vlot on time.

Race rules and steering instructions can be read here. If you are going to steer, prepare well!

Bereikbaarheid

It is not far to the WAB, but it is a bit difficult to reach. Therefore, special buses have been provided to take everyone to and from the WAB.

The address of the Willem-Alexander track is: Nely Gambonplein, 2761 EH Zevenhuizen.If you are going by public transport, take the train to Rotterdam Alexander and buy a ticket for the bus via this link.

Costs a little more than a 10€, but then you'll be nice and easy on your way . The schedule of when the buses run can be found here!
