Local Sailor Sails 1,000 Miles for Kids

  
Pella, IA -- There are marathons out there, but
Travis Daniels, Commodore of the Red Rock Yacht Club in Pella, IA, has a new one for the books -- a 1,000 mile sailing marathon on Iowa's largest lake. Daniels is sailed his 28-foot Hunter boat, the Gracie Mae II, for 10 days without break, on Lake Red Rock, in the Kruise for Kids to achieve an ambitious goal.

Daniels did it all to benefit the Red Rock Yacht Club's Junior Mariners Program. The program teaches children ages 7-18 the skills and art of sailing, racing, and water safety. Pledges and donations for the Cruise for Kids are helping the club purchase new boats for an on-the-water teaching fleet.

hen asked why he was did this, Daniels said “…the kids need the boats, I needed the time off work, and my wife needed another reason to call me crazy.”
