Masters morning row and youth categories
This year’s San Diego Crew Classic is back, and as most of you know, there have been a few changes. The first is that after USRowing’s changes, the youth races are now all age group categories. The second is that the Masters Age Group races are now held in the morning. AE is Saturday morning and F+ is Sunday morning. We look forward to seeing you all race and then spend the rest of the day at the beach. Here you can sign up.
Coronado Brewing Company Biergarten
We are also pleased to announce that this year’s beer garden is sponsored by the Coronado Brewing Company. They will offer her Salty Crew Blonde Ale, Weekend Vibes IPA, Palm Sway IPA, and Orange Ave Wit. For those of you who don’t drink beer, they also offer their Nice & Dry Cider and their Super Fruit with Acai Berry Cider. Coronado Brewing Company takes the coastal lifestyle seriously, so come toast to more time with your toes in the sand and swimming in the surf.
San Diego Crew Classic Official Gear
Regatta Wear will provide you all with San Diego Crew Classic gear. They will provide the entrance tent so you can buy all your gear en route to the regatta. They’ll also be providing the competitor’s long-sleeved performance t-shirt, so be sure to ask your coach next month for details.
Sharp Memorial Ambulatory Pavilion Brunch by the Bay: The Rowing Twenties
The brunch tent is sponsored by the Sharp Memorial Ambulatory Pavilion. Sharp has provided first aid and medical supplies to the San Diego Crew Classic for more than twenty years, and we’re thrilled to have them back as sponsors for this year’s Brunch by the Bay: The Rowing Twenties. Because just like the Roaring Twenties, we all have to take off our flip-flops and let off steam after three years without Crew Classic.
Rudder repair and erg raffle
Concept2 will be back as a sponsor and for those of you who need repairs etc to your oars they will be happy to make reservations during the regatta. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected] and we will do what we can to help you. They have also generously agreed to donate an ergometer to our annual raffle. Tickets are sold on site.
Shimano will also be involved as a pavilion sponsor in the athletes’ area. They will allow you to try their specialized SRD 600 foot courses with their virtual pivot system and of course the ability to switch shoes, eliminating the need to share shoes between athletes.
Erg warm-up provider
If you’d like to warm up on land before hitting the water, we’re pleased to announce that Community Rowing of San Diego has made their stationary bikes available in the warm-up area. They will also have the opportunity to learn how to row and will send a number of volunteers to help around the regatta grounds. Thank you Community Rowing of San Diego, you really know how to show up and support the rowing community.
Most importantly, we look forward to seeing you all for another fantastic weekend of racing on the sunny shores of Mission Bay at the 49th San Diego Crew Classic.
Rowing season starts here!™
