Berg Cup/Newport Regatta Weekend

Sunday, 24. March 2013


NEWPORT BEACH — The 48th Annual Newport Regatta took place over calm, overcast conditions inside the Newport Harbor on Sunday, with UC Santa Barbara Gauchos edging out the host Pirates for the overall regatta title.

The Pirates and Gauchos each finished with 25 overall points in the eight-race regatta. But, it was UCSB which won the Varsity 8 race which determined the overall winner and Palmer Cup champion.

The 49ers did more than hold their own against some of the best four-year rowing schools in California, taking the Women’s Varsity 4+ event in the Berg Cup at (7:47.7), trailed by Orange Coast (8:09), Loyola Marymount (8:11.4), and Chapman University (8:52.1).

The 49ers will return to the waters and compte at the Crew Classic in San Diego on April 6-7.











Novice Men Returning to OCC’s Newport Regatta

Sunday, 25. March 2012

This just in from Men’s Novice Coach Jeffrey Vreeland:

CSULB has been invited back to Orange Coast’s Annual Newport Invitational Regatta on Saturday, April 7. The Novice Men will take on top SoCal screws from UCLA, USC, UCSD, USD, UCI, and OCC.

CSULB was removed from the regatta in the early 2000′s due to lack of entries and low participation on the team. This marks a milestone in improving Beach Crew’s performance and integrity of the team as a whole.

There’s no doubt that the month of April will be a busy one in the season. April kicks off with San Diego Crew Classic followed by the Newport Regatta, Chapman Invite Regatta, and the Western Intercollegiate Rowing Champs in Sacramento. See the calendar for more info.
