Thumbs up Catalina Ski Race Video

For those of you have never been...here's a cool video of just how insane these guys are. The start and drag race at the end are hardcore (along with everything in between).

Congrats to Gary and crew for a great run in Men's Open.

Here's how it shook out:

Thanks for posting that! I can't imagine going that entire distance and having that close a finish. How can these guys stand when it's done? Insane is a great word to describe this.

Yes, unless you're referring to the skier's nose!! It's a SKI race, not a BOAT race Norty so the finish is when the skier crosses the line, not the boat.
