  • About

    The CSR is the premier water ski race in the world, but the CSR is more than just a race.  With its rich history, quality of competition, and challenge of the open ocean, the CSR has earned its place on the world stage.

    Water skiers from around the globe come to participate.  This race has notoriety because of the number of participants, and because it is the only open-ocean ski race regularly scheduled anywhere in the world.  It is an especially unique challenge to compete across 62 miles of ocean. It is highly coveted and followed around the ski racing world.

    The start will be between islands Grissom and White, in front of Junipero Beach (visible from the bluffs along Ocean Blvd). After exiting the breakwall, they will ski to Avalon Harbor then turn around to ski back to the finish line at the stern of the Queen Mary. The Awards ceremony will be held at the Maya Hotel Esplanade; all are welcome! Visit our website for more information!
