The Florida Skiff Challenge began as a head-to-head battle for bragging rights and, today, has evolved into a daring feat to help shine a spotlight on Florida’s water crisis by those who’ve been directly affected by it—boat manufacturers.
Participating teams circumnavigate 1,300 miles non-stop around the state of Florida in 18-foot skiffs, putting their boats and best teams to the ultimate test for the sake of the Everglades. 100% of funds raised benefit Captains For Clean Water and our mission to restore and protect Florida’s estuaries through education, advocacy, and science-based solutions.
The Skiff Challenge is a unique platform for the outdoor and marine industries to advance the fight for clean water and healthy estuaries and provides a pathway for people to learn more, get involved, and speak up.
We believe that we can’t rely on others to protect our natural resources. We must be the ones to step up and fight for what we love—our way of life depends on it.
Each team member is expected to conduct themselves with the utmost professional courtesy toward other team members, teams, sponsors, representatives, viewers, and supporters. The Florida Skiff Challenge has the right to refuse any builder or team from participating in the event due to unsportsmanlike conduct or what may be deemed as unprofessional conduct or behavior.
