    Mission Bay will be alive with graceful streams of rowers for the 2009 Crew Classic on Sunday.

    Among the participants are members of the U.S. Women's Rowing Team fresh from their gold medal win in Beijing.

    The Crew Classic is the competitive site of both future and current Olympians. But  novices and youngsters and oldsters alike are not to be discouraged.

    It's also an event for rowers ages 14-84 and of all levels to compete in various divisions. The masters level is the fastest growing segment of the sport according to a Rick Schloss, Crew Classic spokesperson.

    Spectators can watch it all from Crown Point Shores, Mission Bay or on the Jumbotron.
