|Join USD athletes, alumni, friends and family on Sunday, April 1st, 2012, for the 39th Annual Crew Classic a Mission Bay. USD's Crew team and alumni will return to the sun-kissed water of Mission Bay and compete in more than 100 races over two days. Again they will be cheered by spectators enjoying amenities such as the shore-side tent row for alumni and clubs, the jumbotron displaying races start to finish, a beer garden on the sand, and much more.|
USD will have a large white tent set up right on the waters edge, "Tent Row," providing a great vantage point to watch and cheer on the regatta. The Athletics Department and Alumni Association will provide brunch/lunch items and beverages in the tent for athletes, parents, alumni, and friends of USD. Food in the USD tent is complimentary with your admission ticket. We will start the barbecues about 10am and will be serving until 1 pm, however, the main gate opens at 6am with the first race starting at 7:30am so feel free to come as early as you like. Adjacent to the USD tent is the beer/wine garden which also opens at 10am.
The finals of the Collegiate Copley Cup (men) and Jessop/Whittier Cup (women) will be raced before 9:30am on Sunday and USD alumni will also have a boat entered with teams made up of past U.S. National and Collegiate National Champions that will be raced in the afternoon.
Also, a boat will be christened the "Thomas Cosgrove" in honor of Dr. Tom, a former USD employee and alumnus who helped found the Crew program.
Admission to the Crew Clasic is $12 for adults, Under 12 and military are free.
