THE 2019 FLORIDA SKIFF CHALLENGE

Thursday, April 4 – Sunday, April 7, 2019

What began as a head-to-head battle for bragging rights has evolved into a daring feat to help shine a spotlight on Everglades restoration and solutions to Florida’s water crisis.

Skiff manufacturers put their boats and best teams to the ultimate endurance test, circumnavigating the state of Florida in a nonstop race from the Pensacola, the northernmost point on the west side, to Jacksonville, the northernmost point on the east side of the state.

1,300 miles of grueling waterway. Two days. No sleep. One winner.

Stay tuned for team profiles, stories, and how you can get in on the action!

May the best skiff win.
