Since 1973, San Diego has hosted the top crews from the nation in a major early-season regatta. The San Diego Crew Classic Regatta [ official web site ] is one of the largest and most important regattas on the American rowing calendar.
JAMCO will again be covering this regatta with live results, split times, and streaming audio and video.
Regatta photos have been uploaded to flickr.com.
Saturday weather is sunny with a cross wind from the port side, i.e., from lane 1 to lane 6.
Sunday is cooler, with a brisk cross wind from lane 1 to lane 6.
On Saturday, high tide is at 8:43 am and low tide at 3:18 pm. This means crews in the first 8 races ( including all Cal Cup, Copley and Jessup-Whittier heats ) will be run either with a slight in-coming tide, or at slack high tide. The next 36 races through race number 44 will be run against the outgoing tide. The final 10 races of the day will be run with an incoming tide.
On Sunday, high tide is at 9:15 am and low tide at 3:37 pm. This means crews in the early races through race number 67 ( the last of the Petite Finals ) will be run with with a slight in-coming tide, or at slack high tide. For the rest of the day, all of the Grand Finals will be run against an outgoing tide.
The tidal change each day between high and low tides is approximately
Unofficial Times — JAMCO takes its own finishing times and those are the first finishing times to appear on JAMCO's real time race result pages. Those pages are marked "unofficial" because the Regatta Committee is also taking finishing times, and its times are the "official" times. The Regatta Committee provides JAMCO with its "official" times after the races are over, and JAMCO then enters the "official" times on its reports. Therefore, there may be a considerable delay in replacing the "unofficial" times with "official" times, but the order of finish should not change."
Color Coding — Real time movements by crews during each 500 meter interval are highlighted by different colors. Gold (yellow) crews are closing on the leader in the current 500. Silver (light blue) crews are closing on the second place crew, but falling further behind the leader. Bronze (orange) crews are closing on the third place crew, but falling further behind the leader and the second place crews. White crews are falling further behind all three leading crews. Quite often, when a crew turns gold, it takes the lead in the next 500.
Printing Tips — When printing JAMCO race bulletins, you may get better results if you set your browser to print background colors and images. If you are using MS Internet Explorer, go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced and scroll down to where you see "Printing - Print background colors and images."
Automatic Refresh — During the race, JAMCO updates race results every 500m. JAMCO web pages showing real-time results are designed to automatically reload or refresh every 30 seconds. If you are viewing a race in progress and the page does not automatically reload, please press the "Refresh" or "Reload" button on your browser.
