It’s common to see sailboats, yachts and stand-up paddlers crossing San Diego Bay, but next weekend brings a fresh sense of excitement. The 40th San Diego Crew Classic comes to Mission Bay on Saturday and Sunday, April 6 and 7, with more than 4,000 rowers from around the world participating. Some 100 races make up the two-day event, and spectators can watch all the action from the lawns of Mission Bay Park. Big screens will be set up, as well, providing close-up views of the junior-, collegiate-, masters- and Olympic-level contests.
