King's Day sailing rules

Boats up to 10 metres long may sail through Amsterdam's canals on King's Day, but it's important to be aware of the rules. Alongside the general regulations that always apply to boats travelling on Amsterdam's canals, a number of additional regulations come into force on King's Day. These rules and other relevant information can be found on the Waternet website (in Dutch).
