Rotterdam Harbour Races


Welcome to the official website of the Rotterdam Harbour Races.

This year on the 5th of September 2021 A.R.S.R Skadi Rotterdam and K.R.Z.V De Maas organise The Harbour Races.


We are working hard to make the 2021 edition of the Rotterdam Harbour Races a great success! We are aiming at organising the race in the same manner as we did in 2019. However, we don’t know what the future of the pandemic looks like. If any adjustments to the event need to be made, we will let you know as soon as possible. 

aBOUT Coastal Rowing Rotterdam

Coastal rowing has made an enormous development in the past years. This branch of rowing sport focuses on rowing in open waters. Because of the heavier conditions, the boats are wider and more robust than the boats used on rivers and lakes. The coastal rowing sport also has common grounds with the sailing sport. Coastal rowing guarantees a spectacle on the waters of Rotterdam. 

On the 5th of September 2021, the Rotterdam Harbour Races will be held! This regatta will take place on the Maas. The start will be a jump start, with 10-15 boats. The course is approximately 5 kilometres. This race in the centre of Rotterdam will be a true spectacle on water.


Registrations for 2021 are now open! Dutch rowers can apply on the KNRB website. For (international) questions you can contact us at: [email protected]
