Collegiate rowing teams came together April 5-7, 2013 for one of the biggest regattas on the West Coast — the San Diego Crew Classic.

The waters on Mission Bay served as the playing field for some 155 events, which culminated in trophy presentations Sunday afternoon, and the 20th Classic Brunch by the Bay, chaired this year by Jane Fetter of La Jolla and a committee of 21 volunteers.

The men’s open varsity race is for the Copley Cup, named for the family who has been instrumental in sustaining the regatta since 1973. This year’s Copley Cup was won by the UC Berkeley Rowing Team and was presented by Liz Copley in memory of David Copley.

The women’s varsity race is for the Jessop-Whittier Cup, won this year by the USC women’s rowing team. It was presented in memory of Patty Wyatt and Joe Jessop, Sr., co-founders of the San Diego Crew Classic, by members of their families.
