37th Annual Catalina Classic

The 37th annual Catalina Classic Paddleboard Race, being held on Sunday, August 26th, will be sponsored by Body Glove for the 2nd year. The 32-mile race which spans the channel from the Isthmus, Catalina to the Manhattan Beach Pier is the most historic paddleboard race in the world. Body Glove co-founder, Bob Meistrell, will lead the race in his boat, the Disappearance, for the 25th consecutive year. Bob’s grandson Jamie Meistrell and great nephew Daley Meistrell will carry on the family heritage by participating in the race for their first time. The race starts promptly at 6am at the Isthmus where all 85 paddlers will test their ability and endurance against the elements as they paddle across one of the Pacific’s deepest and busiest channels.  The Disappearance will be live tweeting updates so make sure to follow @catalinaclassic for the latest information.
