Beach Crew never misses the chance to compete in the annual Bill Lockyer Christmas Regatta, now through its 41st year. More widely known as the “Long Beach Christmas Regatta”, this event wrapped up “Back to the Beach Weekend,” a weekend that celebrated our past, present, and future seasons we will look forward to.
Other universities in attendance were: University of San Diego, San Diego State, UC Irvine, Cal Maritime Academy, and University of Arkansas. Probably the most exciting heat of the weekend was the Men’s Novice come-back against University of San Diego. After falling only to USD in the eights, the 49ers fought back in both fours pulling ahead of USD’s and ended up winning first and third, respectively. Several boats from the Women’s team placed second only to USD.
