Racer's from across the USA, Canada and Australia will descend on Long Beach for their chance at winning the most prestigous LB2CAT trophy and title of Champion for this IJSBA sanctioned National Championship event.


    The race is true test of man/woman, machine vs 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.

    IJSBA National champions will be crowned in all classes; Pro/Am Open, Vet/Master Open, 4 Stroke Stock, 4 Stroke Naturally Aspirated Open and Manufacturer’s Stock (completely stock, no mods whatsoever*). Great giveaways for the Top 3 overall will be an added incentive as the news of the weekend of racing stirs interest in the entire pwc community to enter and be a part of this great annual race.


    Offshore racers from across the country, Canada & Australia will compete with the elite West Coast group of offshore endurance experts try to break the records in every class. 21017 winner Mike Klippenstein, Ft. MacMurray, AL, Canada on his #212 Yamaha R & D T1 Turbo will be on hand to defend his National Championship against some past winners including 5 time LB2CAT Champion Craig Warner #7 Team Kawasaki's from Ackworth, GA and a group of seasoned veterans including the 5 time Australian Endurance Champion, Christian D'Agostin.

    Cyrille Lemoine (France via Southern California USA) and YAMAHA wins the 2017 LB2CAT USA Offshore National Championship Race! 2ND: Mike Klippenstein (Canada) 3RD: Cassius Sanders (USA). Yamaha Sweeps the Podium at 2017 LB2CAT! Top Kawasaki ULTRA racers Craig Warner and Mark Gerner go out early with mechanical issues on their Kawasaki ULTRA Turbo platforms. There appears to be a shifting of the guard in offshore from kawasaki to Yamaha. Congratulations to all that competed!
