With its boathouse located at the river Amstel in the heart of the city of Amsterdam, the club offers great rowing and training facilities. The Amsterdam Student Rowing Club Nereus was founded in 1885 and has performed at the highest level ever since. It continuously provides a substantial part of the national team and produces medal winning athletes. The last four Olympic Games saw members of Nereus win medals:
Membership is open to university and hogeschool (professional school) students in Amsterdam. With more than 800 members, Nereus is the biggest student rowing club in the Netherlands.
Nereus organizes several rowing races, amongst which the internationally renowned Heineken Roeivierkamp. This pre-season regatta (held every March) annually attracts a lot of foreign crews. The unique racing format (250m, 750m, 2500m and 5000m) proves to be a spectacular sight and experience for both spectator and athlete.
Nereus is also organizer of the Dutch Indoor Rowing Championship. This event was host of the Open European Championships twice, in 2004 and 2006. Still, each December a group of foreign rowing enthusiasts participate at this event.
