2018 Skiff Challenge

RISE TO THE 2018 FLORIDA SKIFF CHALLENGE

It’s that time of year again – the 4th annual Florida Skiff Challenge!

Our skippers have charted their course and now we just need the support of generous sponsors like you! Our four teams have a daunting challenge ahead of them, navigating from Pensacola, to the Southernmost point of Key West, and then north to Cumberland, Georgia at Cabin Bluff.

  • Mission Statement:

    The Challenge is designed to bring awareness to our home state of Florida. By competing in the Challenge we collectively as Florida based manufacturers have the opportunity to raise funds that can be used for allocation towards efforts to help support our industry and the wellness of the recreational angler.

WHY WOULD YOU TAKE ON SUCH A FEAT? It’s because we’re all in it for the same great cause…

100% of all funds raised will benefit the CAPTAINS FOR CLEAN WATER’S MISSION…

Bring awareness and scientifically supported solutions to restore and protect marine ecosystems and our way of life for future generations.
