The Westelijke Regatta takes place on the Willem-Alexander Baan in Zevenhuizen, South-Holland. The venue is open to all during the regatta, the entry to the Crew's enclosure is restricted. In the Boat House, food and drinks are available for purchase and a bike rental is present.


At the Westelijke Regatta, no dresscode is enforced. However, it is always regarded well if spectators and crews represent their club through wearing the club's blazer/outfit/colours.


In front of the Atlantabrug a parking is created during the regatta. Parking on the dike or on the banksides of the Slingerkade is not allowed, as it prevents the emergency services proper access to the terrain. Parking on the terrain is heavily restricted because of limited capacity. Exemptions are provided after contact in due time with the organisation.

Public transport

The regatta course and the nearest tube station, Nesselande (Lijn B). Lopend is dit ongeveer een half uur, fietsend een kwartier. Doorgaans is er een busverbinding beschikbaar tussen station Rotterdam Alexander en de wedstrijdbaan, dit wordt in aanloop naar de wedstrijd meer gecommuniceerd.


The Willem-Alexander Baan is reached well by bike. The course is located in the nature reserve 'De Eendrachtspolder' and next to the Rottemeren. From Rotterdam and Zoetermeer the best route is following the river Rotte. If you are planning on traveling (partially) with public transport, the nearest tube station is Nesselande (Line B) with only fifteen minutes distance. Note that the bike in the tube is free of charge during weekends.
