The standard rules of the Willem-Alexander Baan will apply during the Westelijke Regatta

Warming up, waiting for the role call and cooling down take place in the training lanes, which are separated from the regatta course. The training lanes are directly in front of the boat house. Training during the regatta is not allowed in any form.

Violation of the lane and regatta rules can be penalised with an official warning.

Since 2019, lanes 0 and 9 are prohibited from use with both shell and oars (with exemption of use to dock at the Winner's dock).
