About the Montauk Canyon Challenge

The Montauk Canyon Challenge started in 2011. A Captain's Choice Tournament created by Sport Fishing Captains & Crew to restore Montauk as the Northeast Premier Offshore Fishing Destination. Our mission is to foster camaraderie and sportsmanship at the dock that will reach 100 miles offshore. Over the last 6 years, the tournament has grown to over 60 boats and record prize money! We continue to improve the MCC every year from great Captains buckets to shirts to an awesome awards dinner on the great lawn at the Montauk Yacht Club. Tight Lines!

Maggie's Mission

Maggie Schmidt was a healthy, vibrant and beautiful 16 year old girl when she was suddenly diagnosed in October 2016 with a very rare and aggressive cancer - Malignant Rhabdoid Tumors.

Maggie, her family, her Oncologist and a team of Doctors and Nurses at Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC worked together to battle the cancer with various chemotherapy treatments and surgeries but unfortunately, Maggie lost her battle on June 1, 2017. Cancer robbed her of a full life. This was a difficult and painful journey for such a young person, yet Maggie faced her situation with courage and dignity. Maggie asked us before she died to help other children and young adults dealing with this devastating disease. This has now become Maggie's Mission.
