The 62 mile round trip endurance race is one of the oldest offshore PWC end races and the hallmark of Offshore Endurance racing in the United States. 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.
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.
Please note that for 2020, we will be holding the LB2CAT in conjunction with the 72nd annual famed Catalina Ski Race. PWC racers will start their race (LB2CAT) 20 minutes after the last waterski race teams have left so as to not mix with the waterski racers. More information to come.
