NORTON SHORES, Mich. (AP) – Two brothers and a friend are planning a more than 80-mile crossing of Lake Michigan by sharing time on a paddle board.

MLive.com reports 23-year-old Craig Masselink, his 19-year-old brother Trent Masselink and their friend 21-year-old Ginny Melby plan to leave Milwaukee on Sunday on what’s expected to be a 30-plus hour trip to their families’ cottages in West Michigan.

Melby lives in Grand Rapids and spent her summers getting to know the Masselinks, who have a cottage next door to her parents’ in Norton Shores.

They plan to set off together with one person on the board while the other two are in a 24-foot boat filled with food, water and supplies.

The paddle aims to raise money for the organization Restore International.
