MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Two brothers and a female friend have completed an 80 mile paddle-board trek across Lake Michigan, seven hours ahead of schedule.

23-year-old Craig Masselink, his 19-year-old brother Trent, and 21-year-old Ginny Melby left Milwaukee Sunday morning with the assumption that it would take 30 hours to finish their journey.

It actually took 23 hours, as they landed a little before 8 a.m. at Norton Shores Michigan, near Muskegon. That’s where the Melby and Masselink families have cottages together for years.

The event raised money for Restore International, a group that focuses on social justice issues in Uganda.

Melby and the Masselink brothers took turns paddling, while the other rested on a 40 foot support boat. The Masselinks’ father was on board, along with Melby’s mother.
