From the 19th to 20th of March 2022, we plan to return to the Amstel River for the Head! National and international rowers will once again be able to test their rowing skills in this unique long-distance race.

We will certainly be following government policies regarding COVID. This website will keep you up-to-date about all the measures that may affect the Head.

New fields at HEAD 2022

This year rowing at the Head of the River Amstel will be possible in a number of new fields.

Last year we added Double 8* and Ladies Double 8*. These fields will race again this year and do not have rules regarding age.

And, for the first time, Elite 4* and Light Elite 4* will be at the starting line of this year’s race.

Mixed Teams

Would you like to row in a mixed ladies/men's team? Starting this year, you can, in the following open fields: V8+, V4* and V8*. Additionally, full men's teams can row in these fields. For these fields we do not use correction factors.

In addition, there are the mixed fields 4* and 8+. Here the ratio of women to men is 50-50.

Keep an eye on the website for more information about the race including:

  • the complete list of numbers

Have fun preparing for The Head!
