)-- Community Rowing of San Diego Brings a New Fan Experience to the San Diego Crew Classic.
Fan Experience offers San Diegans and visitors a spirited insider’s view into the sport of rowing.
Community Rowing of San Diego (CRSD), a public benefit organization that empowers youth to reach their potential through the sport of rowing, welcomes rowing fans of all ages to come join the fun at an inaugural Fan Experience on April 6 and 7, at the 46th Annual San Diego Crew Classic spectator area on Crown Point Shores, Mission Bay.
Whether you are a new or avid rower or just plain curious, there is something for everyone to enjoy at the Fan Experience! Activities include Ergometer Education competitions, kids’ crafts, and Instagrammable photo opportunities with elite athletes or with you as a rower in action. You can also test your Ergometer speed to that of a dolphin or see if your power output will light an LED bulb or toaster oven.
“As we celebrate the 46th year of the San Diego Crew Classic, we’re proud to be part of an event that attracts and positively benefits the San Diego community,” said Shane Farmer, President of CRSD. “The CRSD Fan Experience tents offer activities for all ages and skill levels to intimately learn about rowing and associate with athletes and coaches. We thank the San Diego Crew Classic committee, Sweetwater Union High School plus Gompers Preparatory Academy volunteers, and the George Pocock Rowing Foundation for their support to make this first Fan Experience possible.”
Beyond this regatta weekend, CRSD continues to build a sustainable presence in San Diego’s South Bay region for safe, recreational aquatic activities and competitive rowing. Through financial support and partnerships, CRSD expands opportunities to introduce the sport of rowing to community members of all ages and backgrounds. CRSD partners with US Rowing, a nonprofit organization recognized by the United States Olympic Committee as the governing body for the sport of rowing, to support disabled veterans through its Freedom Rows program.
