Friday night we are happy to offer a showing of "Kiss The Joy", the Joan Lind Van Blom Story, on the Jumbotron at 5pm as a complimentary feature of your participation in this year's Crew Classic. There will also be a taco truck on site during the film for you and your athletes to purchase some dinner. Come, bring a towel, sit on the lawn and join us for the inspirational story of the first female American Olympic medalist from the 1976 Olympics.
The Crew Classic is thrilled to play host to some great racing in the Varsity Collegiate races this year. On the women's side, there will be lots of competitive collegiate crews spanning the entire United States, from Bates College in Lewiston, Maine to USD and UCSD in San Diego, California. Keep your eye out for the Women's Collegiate Varsity Jessop-Whittier Cup Invitational, including top name universities like University of California, Berkeley, University of Washington, University of Southern California (who won the 2021 Head of the Charles in the Club 8+ category), and the 2021 NCAA National Champions: University of Texas, Austin.
Regarding junior rowing, be prepared to watch some ruthless competition amongst the most competitive teams in the country, including Capital Crew, Saugatuck Rowing Club, Marin Rowing Association, Connecticut Boat Club, Marina Aquatic Center, Newport Aquatic Center, and more!
The Women's 8+ Alumni Susan Francia Trophy will definitely be a race you won't want to miss, featuring San Diego's 3 collegiate women's teams: San Diego State University, University of San Diego, and University of California, San Diego.
