Catalina Channel Season Concludes with Banquet

Awards Banquet in San Pedro on November 2nd
Swimmers, Observers, Paddlers Are Encouraged to Attend Inspiring Brunch

Invitations to the Annual CCSF Awards Banquet have been delivered to 2013 swimmers. Anyone may attend the banquet brunch: Swimmers, supporters, paddlers, observers, and family. Everyone is encouraged to do so. It’s guaranteed to be an emotional gathering of impressive marathon swimmers.

Please join us on the first Saturday in November to celebrate the Class of 2013.

RSVP is required. Purchase tickets and reserve tables for large parties. The banquet room has reached capacity the past couple of banquets… so do not delay in returning your invitation.

This Catalina Channel swimming season was one of our busiest, with around four-dozen events featuring nearly 100 swimmers including relays.

The Awards Banquet will recognize each swimmer and honor their achievements. Every Catalina crossing is filled with inspiring stories.
