Our sincerest THANK YOU to all teams who showed up and finished the 2019 Florida Skiff Challenge! The challenge took place on April 4-7, 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.

Yellowfin, Hell’s Bay Boatworks, Sea Pro Boats, and Key West Boats, invested their time, money, energy, and bodies into raising awareness about Florida’s water crisis through this incredible feat. 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 put their butts in the seats and helped share this message loud and clear: We want Florida’s waters fixed.

We are in awe of their relentless dedication to this ultimate endurance challenge and their will to finish despite every possible adversity. To all the supporters who cheered on their team, thank you! Your encouragement boosted their morale and kept them going.

Stay tuned for announcements and updates about the 2020 Florida Skiff Challenge.
