Race course

Competition course

  • A one kilometre long, ten-lane competition course will be set up between the agricultural port of Kortgene and the Zandkreek lock. 
  • The course consists of 10 lanes, 22 meters wide at the start, tapering to the turning buoys at 25 meters wide.
  • The turn buoy should be taken clockwise for everyone.
  • Minimum depth of the racecourse is 1 meter, there is no tide.
  • The entire route will be clearly marked with marker buoys, including 2 governmental buoys (VM21 and VM19) on the route
  • The start will be at the Veersteiger (Kortgene). From the start, 1000m will be rowed in an assigned lane towards the North/East; after the turning buoy, 1000m will be rowed back to complete the two-kilometre race.
  • All skiffs keep their own lane during the start, also at the turn of the buoys, they can let go of their lane after they have passed the buoys halfway through the lane, this is because the track is not completely straight in relation to the finish.

The start line

In every lane there will be a start buoy with attached bobbin. 


The finish will be at Camping De Paardenkreek, where a grandstand will be built near the harbour entrance, making it possible to watch the races from close by.
