If you would like to sightsee this is an opportunity to go to the Rijksmuseum or watch the morning races depending on the weather, it can be hot or ice cold!! We will tow your boat or hire you a boat for the race and we will prepare the boat for you.
Saturday Evening - gives you the opportunity to head into central Amsterdam to take in the nightlife, we can book a restaurant for you, or you can go it alone.

After the race Nereus Boat Club is the place to be and they put on a great party atmosphere as the races come down. As racing finishes we will either take you back to your transport (Last planes to Gatwick at 2030 or 2125) or you can stay the night for the Prizing and raucous party at Nereus.
