Each year, leading skiff manufacturers put their boats and teams to the ultimate endurance test, circumnavigating 1,300 miles around Florida in a nonstop race from Pensacola to Jacksonville. The event is closely followed by thousands of sportsmen in Florida and across the country, with each team’s land-based chase crew providing fuel and repairs at pre-planned pit-stops (like Cedar Key/West Palm Beach).
This year’s challenge will help Captains for Clean Water shine a spotlight on solutions to Florida’s water crisis by those who directly represent the $24.6 billion marine and fishing industries—boat builders and the outdoor community. Specifically, we’re asking supporters to contact their legislators in support of Governor Ron DeSantis’s $625 million funding proposal. We need this investment to fix Florida’s waters and protect our way of life for future generations!
