The Regatta

The San Diego Crew Classic is the premier spring rowing regatta in the United States. It is highly regarded as the inaugural race of the rowing season among rowers of all genders, levels and abilities. For decades the Crew Classic has provided athletes and spectators an outstanding combination of action-packed competition, San Diego’s finest food and beer, and grand hospitality events, all set in our iconic Crown Point venue on Mission Bay.
