In the past days we’ve received a lot of messages about the weather prediction for the coming days and the consequences this would have for the Heineken Roeivierkamp. As you can see below, the predictions for now are indicating that the “Siberian Bear” will only be with us for this week. After that it’s back to our good old Dutch spring weather. This means that for now, there is no need to worry about the possibility of ice on the river Amstel on the 10th and 11th of March. We are in close contact with our local weather authorities and will keep you updated, might the forecast change in the coming days.

Do you want to impress your friends at the Heineken this year, but you don’t want to shine alone? Make sure you join the giveaway and shine together!

We’re pleased to announce the 46th edition of the Heineken Roeivierkamp will take place in the weekend of 10th and 11th of March 2018! Enrollment dates and contestant information will be posted later this year. We hope to see you all at the Amstelriver in Amsterdam in due time!

As the coots reclaim the river Amstel, the green Heineken banners are packed in and the rain returns we couldn’t be happier. What a weekend. Great races and possibly the highest attendance ever, we would like to thank everybody who took part in making the 45th Heineken a great success. A big thanks to all the rowers, coaches, internationals, umpires, photographers, timekeepers, course builders, volunteers, (ever) raging reporters, video crews, the old-guard, safety personnel, food-carts and of course all spectators.

The coxswain’s meeting will be held at the Stelle College on the other side of the Amstel. The address is Mr. Treublaan 1-3, Amsterdam. The meeting will be held in Dutch at 6pm and in English at 7pm. It is strongly recommended to thoroughly study the presentation and to be present at the coxswain’s meeting, where possible questions may be asked.

During the meeting there will be a charity event, where one of our VIP’s will be collecting funds for the Alpe d’HuZes event in June. He will be riding the Alpe d’Huez multiple times in a day, to raise money for cancer research. More information about this event can be found at the following link:
