AMERICA’S PREMIER SPRING ROWING REGATTA
The 37th annual San Diego Crew Classic – on March 27 and 28 on San Diego’s beautiful Mission Bay – has matured into the largest regatta in the world exclusively held for eight-oared rowing shells.
The race begins near Sea World and heads north along Mission Bay for 2,000 meters finishing at Crown Points Shores. The protected waters and green lawns of Mission Bay Park offer a perfect setting for this San Diego institution.
Over 3,400 athletes from more than 100 clubs, universities and colleges from across the United States will be taking part. For rowing events, the Crew Classic has been the marquee regatta on the West Coast for many years and has been on the rowing scene with many esteemed regattas such as Head of the Charles.
The Crew Classic has been the competitive site of both future and current Olympians. The Crew Classic is also an event for rowers of all levels and from ages 14-84 competing each year in various divisions. Some are novice rowers, while others are reliving their college and club experiences. The masters level is the fastest growing segment of the sport.
In addition to the outstanding racing, the San Diego Crew Classic features a trade show, great food and and alumni tents along with great viewing of the racing from Crown Point Shores or on the massive Jumbotron.
