San Diego Crew Classic Logo

The San Diego Crew Classic is the premiere spring rowing regatta. It is highly regarded among rowers spanning generations.

But the San Diego Crew Classic is more than just an event for rowing. San Diego is famous for its multi-faceted and multi-cultural experiences, events, and destinations. The Crew Classic is not only an athletic event with competitors at the peak of physical fitness, but a social gathering for enthusiasts to enjoy great local food, a beer garden with San Diego’s famous local craft breweries, and shopping all while soaking in Mission Bay, just a mile from the beach.
The San Diego Crew Classic spans a lifetime of rowing, bringing athletes from novice to Olympian together, and is the place for rowers to “grow up”.  Many athletes first spring regatta experience is at the SDCC as high school competitors. As a teenager, the SDCC is the greatest introduction to the world of rowing: it is larger than life — the jumbotron, the considerable number of spectators, and rowing shells as far as the eye can see.  
As a collegiate athlete, the SDCC means a chance to size up the spring’s competition across the nation and to earn rankings which will affect the rest of the season. As alumni, the SDCC is the place to reconnect with former teammates, friends, and coaches. Many alumni continue to race in both alumni and masters’ club events.
It is a common meeting place for families, children, and friends too. The Crew Classic is a place to educate your children and families on the beauty of the sport of rowing, the importance of physical activity and a healthy lifestyle, and what it means to be a teammate and to support one another. The San Diego Crew Classic watches young athletes and individuals mature into socially responsible adults who will further the lessons learned on the waters of Mission Bay, and introduces generation after generation to the sport of rowing.
