International Crews

The annual WinterWedstrijden, organized by D.S.R. Proteus-Eretes, is the opening of the Dutch national rowing season. The event will take place on the Schie in Delft this year for the 45th time!

In 1976, the WinterWedstrijden was created because of the need for the KNRB to have a selection test after the winter break. Nearly fifty years later, this competition has grown to an event that rowers across the Netherlands train for all winter long. Each year we welcome more than 500 teams and see nearly 2000 rowers compete out on the water.

The WinterWedstijden is also the perfect place for rowing enthusiasts! With a clubhouse stocked with hot chocolate and other delicious snacks (along with hundreds of rowing boats to check out), the atmosphere is unforgettable.

We would love to invite international crews to compete in the WinterWedstrijden. Send us an e-mail via for entries and further inquiries.
