The Willem-Alexander Baan (WAB) is a “top location for top performances” in the middle of nature. The WAB is also particularly suitable for (multi-day) training camps with your team. You can row, run, cycle, swim, canoe, and more as offered by Sportbedrijf Rotterdam. With a rowing course that meets Olympic standards, it goes without saying that sports are performed at a high level at the WAB. It has the facilities in-house to make it a productive time for you and your team.
Don’t worry, usually it is not that busy… There is plenty of water for you to row on!
Makes you wonder whether the satelite was ordered to fly over at this time or are we just lucky to see all these people…
Where’s my racing shell…
Like we said, a lot of water to row on. Don’t get lost! Stay on the course or hop over to the Rotte river and row south to get a cup of coffee with a piece of Dutch apple pie at cafe Oud Verlaat.
The start of the course is in the right bottom corner. On the left is the Rotte river. If you like to hop over with your rowing shell from the Willem-Alexander Baan to the Rotte river, there are two docks connected by a footpath across the dam shown in the middle at the top.
This is a close up of the docks that allow you to hop over from the Willem-Alexander Baan to the Rotte river. The two docks connected with a footpah across the dam are shown at the right.
You chose well to hop over to the Rotte and row south for that piece of pie at cafe Oud Verlaat!
