As most of you are aware, the Heineken roeivierkamp is held on the Amstel river, which runs straight through Amsterdam. It’s not easy to close down one of the cities busiest waterways for a weekend, but somehow we’ve managed for over 45 years. The two-day event sports four distances:
2500m followed directly by 250m
5000m with later in the day the final 750m
In total your crew will be in the water two to three times, as some fields do not start the final 750m. The Club Eight’s field have a capacity limit on the 5000m as well, with only room for the top 15 crews.
