The CSR is the premier water ski race in the world, but the CSR is more than just a race.  With its rich 69 year 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 62 mile-long race to Avalon and back starts and finishes near the Queen Mary.  Spectators from around the globe can be found lining Queen Mary’s decks in effort to get the best view of the start and finish.
