We are less than two days away from 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, Oakley & Kawasaki & PWCOFFSHORE.com scheduled for Sunday, July 20th at 9:00 a.m.
Here are some important things to be aware of for the race on Sunday, July 20th:
Parking at the South Shores Launch Ramp: There are large concrete pieces on trailers that are taking up approximately 1/3 of the parking lot. The Catalina Ski Race is on Saturday and I've been working with the City of Long Beach to ask the Ski Racers to please remove their boats from the South Shores ramp area after the race. To make sure everything goes smoothly, please plan on getting to South Shores ramp early (5:30- 6:30 am). Please have your crew members/family members/sponsors/friends park at the REEF Restaurant - 880 S. Harbor Scenic Drive, LB 90802 and walk back over to the South Shores ramp (walking path that is parallel to the water) as parking cars without trailers/Ski's will only add to the congestion and may displace an entry for the race. Your compliance with this will help make the event go smooth.
Please come to Registration with all your paperwork, (cash or check if paying on-site, NO Credit Cards will be accepted day of the race) and required safety gear for the race as you will be inspected prior to going in the water.
