Default The Skiff Challenge

1,300 miles around the state of Florida in a nonstop race from Pensacola to Jacksonville in an 18' skiff, this is crazy!

Are they still running today? I know a guy who works at gulf shores power sports and team yellowfin came by today with their boat to do some quick last minute work. The boat was cool as hell. The hull was carbon fiber and he said it didn't weigh anything. I'd love to watch them take off after work, but I don't feel like sitting in the rain.

Back in the 70s My ex brother-in-law and a friend sailed a Boston Whaler Supercat (20’ catermeran similar to an 18’ Hobie Cat) from Panama City to Miami straight across the gulf. It’s an amazing story.

Default Kayak route

The route is a kayak route that starts at Big Lagoon. There is a 1/2 of kayak located at the kayak launch at Big Lagoon. The other half of the Kayak is at the end of the route.
