The ‘Amstelbeker’ is an annual regatta, organized by the K.A.R.&Z.V. ‘De Hoop’ and K.N.S.R.B.. The eight best female and eight best male rowers from every participating boat club compete for the glory of their club during the regatta. The regatta focuses on the spirit of club rowing and a healthy rivalry. Only eights compete at this regatta! Racing at the Amstelbeker is on a knock-out basis, with crews rowing two abreast over a 750 meters long course across the river Amstel.
