PHINS Water Sports Club is holding their first annual Catalina Charity Row. Each year PHINS will designate a charity to promote their cause and raise money. This year’s chosen charity is Heal the Bay.
Participants will row from Mother’s Beach in Marina del Rey to Two Harbors in Catalina Island. The rowers must row approximately 33 miles. If they average 5 mph it will take almost 7 hours from start to finish. Each 17-foot boat entered has two slide-seat rowing positions. PHINS will provide 5 boats for a total of 10 rowers. The entry fee is $1,250 per boat.
PHINS is looking for people with chase boats to donate their time to help with this event. A chase boat should accompany each of the rowboats on the way to Catalina.
Upon arrival in Two Harbors all participants will get together for a celebratory lunch before heading back to Marina del Rey on the chase boats.
If interested in participating, whether rowing, providing or captaining a chase boat, or donating to the event, contact Sheila Phinny at PHINS at 310-592-9333 or by email.
