Cal swept all four grand finals at the San Diego Crew Classic at Mission Bay, which was held on March 27-28. In the Copley Cup, the top men's collegiate race at the annual Southern California regatta, the Golden Bears' varsity 8+ took first place with a time of 5:49.50 to win the top event. The Bears also took first in the men's collegiate novice, men's collegiate junior varsity, the men's open event and the JV B final. Over the course of the two-day event, Cal won 10 of the 11 races it competed in. The Bears weren't facing easy competition either, as four teams in the competition rowed in last year's NCAA Championships, including Stanford and national-power Brown.

The Bears clocked a time of 13:40.057 in the 8, 15:47.231 in the 4 and 14:59.643 in the Freshman 8 to take top honors in all three races.At the 45th annual Head of the Charles Regatta on Oct. 19 in Boston, Mass., the Bears came in second overall and first among collegiate boats, beating several elite national clubs, in the eight The men's eight outlasted third-place Washington and crossed the finish line at 14:45.55 in the 37-boat, 3.2-mile race. The men's four came in fifth overall and third among collegiate boats.
