The sailing parade does three separate tours over the Dommel River: on Friday evening June the 21st at 20:00; on Saturday evening the 22nd at 20:00 – and on Sunday the afternoon the 23rd at 15:00 hours. Bosch Parade starts near the Willemsplein. Depending on wind and currents, the parade is expected to pass the Wilhelminabridge approx. 20-30 minutes after its departure. The parade will reach the citadel some 45-60 minutes later.

The stands

The stands are on the banks of the Dommel. The St. John stand is on the scaffolding of the Bolwerk (Westwal side) and the Maria stand next to the Maria bridge opposite the JADS (Van der Does de Willeboissingel side).
