Tomorrow, Troy will be competing in the the 63rd annual Catalina Ski Race. Every year, water skiers from around the globe come to California to compete in the 62 statute-mile race from Long Beach to Catalina and back. Troy and Tyler have been water skiing since middle school and have been racing on and off ever since.
It’ll be a grueling race that can take well over an hour to complete. Traveling at up to 70mph, the skiers are towed approximately 200 feet behind the boat to help with reaction time. We’ll all be doing a dance to appease the calm ocean gods for Troy tonight! Good luck tomorrow, Troy! We’ll be thinking of you and rooting you on from land!
Here’s a video of a race a few years ago in case you’re wondering how fast they really go!
