This is a 300 mile unsupported race from St. Pete to Key Largo for small boats. The real challenge is to do it in a kayak.
Our own Greg Stamer is registered in “class one/no sail”. His watertribe name is “kayakvagabond” and you can track Greg and others at this link.
All boats carry a “SPOT” tracking device.
Good luck all.
The Everglades challenge requires you to paddle 20 or more hours a day if you want to be a front-runner. I’m usually planning for around 3 hours of sleep per day at best, with some short “power naps” to take the edge off, but you suffer and need an attitude of “embrace the suck”. For a longer effort you would need more sleep to be sustainable. The EC is starting soon, on March 7. Knowing that someone is rooting for you always helps, so I hope that folks here follow it!
