Divisions & Groups

Divisions

The Heineken Roeivierkamp complies with the Dutch standard in Divisions which in turn is based on the international classification. Below you can find a table with all divisions in which you can compete at the Heineken Roeivierkamp. Clicking on the division will bring you to the description of the division.

Special note to foreign competitors: part of the Dutch standard (the classifications B, N, O, SA) is based on the number of wins in Dutch 2K regattas; this obviously does not apply to foreign crews. You are however strongly encouraged to choose a division which is suitable for you. The H4K organisation holds the right to place you in a suitable division on its own judgement. For foreign competitors who would like to participate in the first, second or third division, we require rowers’ resumes. Your registration may be cancelled if your crew doesn’t meet the requirements.

Groups

A Group consists of one or more divisions that start within one overall ranking. Since 2006 this applies only to all Men’s and Women’s Masters’ divisions. Thus, there are three groups: for Masters’ Men’s Eights, Women’s Eights and Women’s Quadruple Sculls. On Saturday these crews start in the order of the draw within their respective division. But on Sunday they start in the (reversed) order of the ranking within their group.
