Evening all, receiving many questions and lots of interest in this year's July 20 Long Beach to Catalina and back Offshore National Championship Race - one of the most common questions I receive is "do you have a boat I can rent and run the... race with?" Unfortunately the answer to that question is that PWCOFFSHORE.COM does not have rental boats nor are we aware of rental shops providing craft for this race. The best option might be to consult with a friend on the West Coast of the US that might have a craft and see if they will rent you their craft.... hope to see you all there! http://pwcoffshore.com/LB2CAT_Race_Page.html

Redondo Beach, CA-
We are less than 100 days away from the greatest annual spectacle in Offshore PWC Racing ~ The 2014 Jettribe Long Beach to Catalina & Back (LB2CAT) Offshore Endurance National Championships presented by Hydro-Turf, Sea-Doo, Hot Products, Bomber Eyewear, Jet Re-Nu, Tech One Racing, Oakley & Kawasaki & PWCOFFSHORE.com scheduled for Sunday, July 20th at 9:00 a.m. The 52 mile round trip endurance race is one of the oldest Offshore PWC endurance races and the hallmark of Offshore Endurance racing in the United States. Racer's from across the country will descend on Long Beach for their chance at winning the most prestigous LB2CAT trophy and their share of the prize money for the Sunday event. The race is true test of man/woman vs machine and the elements as water conditions can be deceptively calm yet turn dangerously rough during the channel crossing and both the rider and their craft must be able to handle the punishment that Mother Nature can dish out. Most of the competitors practice for this race, some for over 10 years before attempting it.
Five racing divisions including the “Manufacturer’s Stock” (completely stock, no mods whatsoever) are available for the average PWC enthusiast to participate in 2014 plus a $1,000 purse for the Mfg. Stock class put up by PWCOFFSHORE.COM. These classes along with the Pro/Am Open and Vet/Master Open clases are expected to swell the field to over 40 boats as the news of the weekend of racing stirs interest in the entire personal water craft community to enter and be a part of this momentous annual race. Offshore PWC racers from across the country are clamoring to get their entries in and compete with the elite West Coast group of offshore endurance experts try to break the new records in every class set 6 years ago (54:32 seconds) for the challenging channel crossing.
The four time National champion with back to back wins in 2008 & 2009 and again in 2012 & 2013, Craig Warner, Marietta, Georgia #1 Monster Energy & Kawasaki coming off his win at the prestigious Mark Hahn Memorial 300 Lake Havasu Endurance race in February, will be back to defend his title and look to break PWC Endurance Hall of Famer, Billy Womacks record of 4 wins, which Craig is currently tied with. Other early favorites for the race are PWCOFFSHORE.com founder Mark Gerner, Aliso Viejo, CA #58 on a Kawasaki Ultra 3000X, K.C. Heidler #2 Irvine, CA and Nick Vanis #13, Los Alamitos, CA. Despite having some of the best names of the sport competing, this is after all an endurance race, and it's anyone's guess who will take home the overall title in 2014!
The racers packet and entry form for this years event are available below.
