Dear coaches and competitors,
We look forward to seeing you at the 47th San Diego Crew Classic – Your rowing season starts here! Registration opens on the 16th of September. We have some exciting changes this year and we believe the Crew Classic will be better than ever. Most importantly, we plan to utilize only seven lanes this year which we believe will make the competition, and the viewing, even more exciting. Though this may limit the number of entries in some races, we believe it will increase the competitive spirit.
In the interest of growing junior rowing, especially among younger or smaller clubs, we are adding a few 4x races in the Juniors JV and Novice (coxed) category. Of course we are continuing our many cup races and the exciting college duals. You can expect sunny warm San Diego weather along with the usual fun and exciting Crew Classic atmosphere.
We would like to encourage you to stay at one of our fine San Diego partner hotels – as they are huge supporters of the Crew Classic. We’re still working the details but we would like to thank you by providing special incentives when you stay at one of our partner hotels. There are over 25 hotels in our partner program and can be found on our website. There are a variety of location and pricing options, and are available to rowers, family and friends – please ask for the ‘Crew Classic Group’ rate when booking. Hotels may offer additional incentives such as free/reduced parking, free breakfast, shuttle service.
Be sure to ask for the ‘Crew Classic Group’ rate when you make your reservation – please pass this to your friends, parents, and team coordinators to help them stay at our partner hotels and help support the crew classic.
Thank you for your continued support of the Crew Classic and see you in San Diego on April 4th and 5th!
