Rotterdam, May 23th 2021
Currently, the regatta organisations and the Royal Dutch Rowing Association are in the final phase of receiving permission to organise the Dutch Championships (NK) for the Juniors (Westelijke Regatta) and the Dutch Open for Seniors (Koninklijke-Holland Beker), hereby using the exemptions by the Government for major league games, as was the case with the NK for small vessels (Hollandia).
We have to await permission of the municipalities of Zuidplas and Amstelveen. This also encompasses the possibility of combining both separate NK's, if one of the municipalities does not approve a regatta within their borders. A combined NK shall be organised within the rules of the accepting municipality and will conform to the capacity of the regatta enclosure. This may and will effect the amount of crews accepted on the regatta and the amount of starts each crew will be entitled to (check as well the schedule).
In the case both municipalities do not approve of a regatta, no NK's will take place in 2021. We hope to provide any further information on June 4th 2021.
