The San Diego Crew Classic is only as successful as the community behind it.

The San Diego Crew Classic, from its modest beginnings over four decades ago, has matured into one of the largest regattas in the world. The regatta provides a venue for high school junior programs, collegiate teams, masters’ clubs, and even Olympic-level competition. San Diegans can be proud of the strong influence the regatta has had nationally on the sport of rowing.

Rowing has had a long tradition in our city. Although commonly considered a mostly Ivy League and east-cost sport, rowing in San Diego dates back to 1888, when a men’s rowing and swim club was established, eventually becoming the San Diego Rowing Club (SDRC).

We have the privilege of hosting such a prestigious event that is not only the largest regatta on the West Coast, but is now home to competitors from Freedom Rows and includes participants from Wounded Warriors and Para-rowing. The San Diego Crew Classic brings people together, so together we can give back to a sport that has given us so much.

The San Diego Crew Classic is only as successful as the community behind it. Every year, this event receives endless support from programs and individuals across the country. Become one of those prominent individuals looking to make an impact on the world of rowing and support this event.

Sponsorship opportunities are available at many levels and opportunities.

If you do not wish to become a sponsor of our event, but still wish to donate to our longevity and ability to give back, please donate on this page.
