Shown here is the route from Aegir to the finish line. The shore of the rowing course will be set on Saturday 25th November 2023 at 18:00 depending on the wind direction. When leaving from Aegir, you will go under the Sontbrug and then you can immediately take the first right turn to enter the Ems Canal. From here it is only straight on to the start, with the Borgbrug on the way. Be careful of oncoming traffic at both bridges, rowers coming from Aegir have priority. You must cross the finish line at least 45 minutes before the start. From the finish it is 6 km to the start.
