Rowing regatta: Head of the River Amstel

17 Mar till 18 Mar , 10:00-17:00
Rowing regattas are always exciting affairs, but as the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race in England proves, nothing quite captures the sporting public’s imagination quite like when rowers leave behind their dedicated track venues and take to unpredictable river waters. As such, since its inception in 1933, the Head of the River Amstel has grown into a national boating institution.
