Patty Wyatt – CRCA Hall of Fame Class of 2007

Patty Wyatt organized and coached the first competitive rowing program at ZLAC RC in 1964. Her crew competed at the NWRA National Championships through the 1960’s and 1970’s.

In 1973, Patty, along with Joe Jessop, Andy Borthwick and Glenn Rick, started the San Diego Crew Classic. The idea was to hold an early season collegiate event that would bring together the best collegiate crews from across the country, and to expose junior rowers to collegiate programs. Patty Wyatt was also instrumental in bringing the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic rowing and paddling events to Lake Casitas.
