Joaquin - Everglades Challenge Race

My name is David Hosler,  Joaquin's Grandfather.  He and I are planning on entering an adventure race in March 2018.
The Everglades challenge is an unsupported small craft adventure race down the West coast of Florida from Tampa Bay to Key Largo.   Joaquin hopes to enter this event in March with me in a 17' sailing and rowing Dory he helped build over the summer.    The event travels 300 miles from start to finish and lasts a maximum of eight days.  

The funds will be used for his event entry fee, flight from California to St Petersburg and to purchase "required" personal safety gear and all weather clothing.     
At 14 years old he would be one of the youngest participants to do this adventure challenge and doing it with his Grandfather would be a very special life accomplishment.  

The entry fee is due in January and we are sincerely grateful for your participation with us in this life changing event.   BTW...The location of all boats will be posted live on the Watertribe website map during the entire race so you can see where we are during the race.  We also hope when in cell service range to do Facebook live broadcasts.   

Thank you for considering supporting Joaquin in this great adventure!
