Catalina Ski Race

The Catalina Ski Race, known as "The World's Greatest Ski Race," will enjoy its 66th run on July 19, 2014 starting at 7AM.

And with its start and finish line near the Queen Mary, the World's Greatest Viewing Area for the World's Greatest Ski Race is aboard the Queen Mary. Enjoy Bloody Marys, Mimosas and breakfast in the sun.

With its rich 66-year history, quality of competition, and challenge of the open ocean, water skiers from around the globe come to participate in this unique challenge to compete across 62 miles of ocean to Avalon and back.

For comparison, The Queen Mary is 1,019.5 feet.
