Challenge 113

Follow Cotopaxi’s Challenge 113 where they we are sailing from Key West to Cuba and then kayaking back to Florida while doing good in the process.


Cotopaxi has launched an annual international expedition called Challenge 113. For the inaugural adventure, a small team of entrepreneurs, philanthropists, and adventurers are sailing from Key West to Cuba and then kayaking back to Florida – a distance of 113 miles. While in Cuba, the team will be meeting with local entrepreneurs, learning their stories, and volunteering as mentors and thought partners to help them advance their goals.

Below you will find a feed of pictures, tweets, and blog posts that provide a look at their experience in Cuba, preparation for the paddle, and the crossing. Follow their live tracking link here.

Want to get involved? Challenge yourself to complete 113 miles of any human-powered activity by 11/3. Our partners will donate 10 cents for every mile you bike, 25 cents for every mile you walk/run. Sign up here!

So, I'm about to voyage to #Cuba in this crazy boat with a group of fellow crazy people and @gearforgood. The plan is to explore for a few days (or a week, depending on weather) and then kayak back to Florida. It will be 113 miles from one port to the other and we think it will take between 30 and 50 hours of paddling. We'll be in tandem kayaks and yes, we will have support boats. I'm going to do my best to do the whole thing, but if my body gives out on me I won't have an ego about it and I'll let someone sub in for me, relay style. The team goal is more important than my individual goals. We're working with NOAA and are keeping a close eye on developing storms, so we're being as safe as we can be while doing something inherently unsafe. Will probably be offline until I'm back, but will have much to share upon my return. Wish me luck! #cubakayak #challenge113 #connectedstates #kayak #kayaking #imonaboat
