About thetimetable

Our timetable informs participants when and where they need to be. It includes the time for weighing in, collecting race numbers, and the start and gathering lists. Participating crews must carefully review this schedule.

This is the preliminary timetable. Please note that this may change!


The Dutch standard

The Heineken Roeivierkamp follows the Dutch standard in divisions, based on international classifications outlined in the table at the bottom of the page.


A group consists of one or more divisions that start within a general ranking. Since 2016, this applies only to all men’s and women’s Master divisions. This means there are three groups: Men’s eights, Women’s eights, and Women’s double fours. On Saturday, these teams will start in the order of the draw within their respective division. On Sunday, they will start in (reverse) order of their position within the group.

On the 16th and 17th of March 2024 the 52nd Heineken Regatta will take place on the river Amstel in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. We would be very happy to receive participating teams from all over the world. The entries for internationals will be open from the 14th of November until the 16th of December 2023.


We have some special deals with hostels and hotels! For more information, please contact our foreign competitors contact Isabel Bangma .

Boat Rental

Considering the fact that almost every 8+ and 4x in the Netherlands races at the Heineken Regatta, we kindly ask you to bring your own boat and oars. Often boat transport can be combined with other participating crews. Overseas crews and other international participants can contact boathouses in Amsterdam to rent a boat. Contact Isabel Bangma for more information about possible rent, contact details and rental fees. We can unfortunately not guarantee to have a boat available. Therefore, we recommend to bring own boats when that is possible.

Please note we do not arrange a cox or cox box. You have to sign a “declaration of own risk” before using the boat.

Payment Instructions

Will be sent to you by email after filing your entry. Your registration is only final after we received payment of the registration (and rental) fees. Note that you only have to pay if you are drawn (the draw will be held the week after the registrations close).
