Traditionally, the HT rowing race is followed by the battle for the Sagitta Cup. The ships race through the "Oosterom", towards the "Riepelton", a dividing buoy between the Oosterom and Riepel waterways. They have to sail starboard around the buoy and race back to the finish. The unique thing about this sailing competition is that the teams have to determine the starting time by themselves, based on current calculations and the data of their ship. It is important to arrive at the Oosterombuoy exactly when the tides turn. So it is a matter of good sailing skills.
