The 2019 Florida Skiff Challenge

Take Action To Help Save Florida’s Water!

We need your help! Governor Ron DeSantis put forward a bold vision to restore the Everglades and our water quality.

He’s asked the Legislature for $625 million per year to fund critical restoration projects such as the EAA Reservoir. Urge your elected officials to fully fund the Governor’s budget. We need this investment to fix Florida’s water and protect our way of life for future generations!

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 Florida’s water crisis by those who’ve been directly affected by it—boat manufacturers.

These manufacturers will put their 18-foot skiffs and best teams to the ultimate endurance test, circumnavigating 1,300 miles around the state of Florida in a nonstop race from Pensacola to Jacksonville.

These four teams understand better than anyone that Florida’s economy—and $15 billion marine industry—ultimately rely on the health of the Everglades. They’re putting their butts in the seats to help share this message loud and clear: We want Florida’s waters fixed.

MEET THE TEAMS

Four teams have accepted the ultimate endurance test.

Skiff Challenge founder, Team Yellowfin, is taking on this feat for the fifth time. Team Hell’s Bay returns for their fourth race, hoping to clench their third consecutive championship title. Team Key West and Team Sea Pro are first-time contenders, hailing all the way from South Carolina.

FOLLOW THE RACE

The race begins Thursday, April 4th at 5pm CST through Saturday, April 6th.

The race starts at Flora-Bama in Pensacola. Teams will circle the Florida Keys with a mandatory media break at Gilbert’s Resort in Key Largo, then continue up the east coast to Jacksonville. The first team to reach the City of Jacksonville St. John’s Marina wins the Skiff Challenge. If you see them on the water, cheer them on!
