The Catalina Classic family will be dedicating our 2019 race this year to legendary waterman, Mike Doyle.
Mike Doyle was a true waterman in every way… and a really nice guy too!
Mike paddled the Classic in 1960. He was a extraordinary surfer, paddler, Lifeguard, artist, and all around lover of life. Mike inspired so many people to live their lives to the fullest. Our hearts go out to Annie and the rest of the Doyle family and friends.
This year, paddler Tom Horton, will be fundraising and paddling to raise awareness of the devastating affects of ALS.
There will be ” Live to Surf, Surf to Live” T-shirts for sale at the finish line. All proceeds from these T-shirts will go towards defeating ALS. A paddle out is scheduled at the Hermosa Beach Pier on October 20th at 10:30am. Please contact Tom to see how you can get involved. firstname.lastname@example.org
