Tomcat is bringing back the Catfish Race Series for the first time since 2014.
The company announced it is sponsoring a series of eight kayak kayak race events in the Bay Area and Washington, D.C. Tomcat, based in the United Kingdom, will partner with the Bay Association of Aquatic Parks to stage the events and host them in its namesake waters.
The events will feature an assortment of local kayak owners competing against each other and other kayak paddlers.
This year, the kayak events will include a catfish race, a solo kayak event, and a kayak obstacle course.
The races are set to run from September through December.
Tomcat said the Catfishing Series was originally created to raise awareness of the threats of catfish in the water and the importance of keeping the waterways clean.
The series was also founded to showcase the company’s innovations in the industry.
The brand’s newest line of kayaks, the Tomcat Kayak 8, will be launching this year.
The tomcat 8 is a new line of Tomcat boats that have been designed to perform at the highest level.
The Tomcat 8, which has been on sale since last year, features a larger boat with the added capability of allowing the kayaker to take on the challenge of catching a cat.
It has a 30-foot capacity, the same capacity as a Catfish, and the Tomcats’ innovative design gives it a more stable and more comfortable ride.
“With this new product line we are furthering our mission of helping the world live in harmony by helping to make the world a better place,” Tomcat CEO Tom Clements said in a statement.
“It is a pleasure to be working with our partners to bring the TomCat Series back to the Bay area and across the country.”
