Organization Information

Mission Statement

The specific and primary purpose for which this corporation is formed is to sponsor an annual crew rowing race on Mission Bay in the City of San Diego and to generally encourage and foster, principally among youth, the sport of crew rowing through charitable and educational activities.

Description

The San Diego Crew Classic is the premiere spring rowing regatta. It is highly regarded among rowers spanning generations. The San Diego Crew Classic was formed in 1973 by Patricia Stose Wyatt (a ZLAC member) and Joe Jessop, Sr., (an SDRC member) and other civic-minded San Diegans who intended to bring the nation’s top collegiate crews to Mission Bay in the spring for a showdown regatta. Among the first participants were the University of Washington and the Naval Academy who had developed a great rivalry. When approached with the idea of coming to San Diego for a west coast regatta, they enthusiastically agreed.

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".
