A Siesta Key lifeguard not only finished a charitable mission by paddling 80 miles across a portion of the Atlantic Ocean, he won the best time in his surf and ski division.

Leaving Bimini in the Bahamas at midnight on June 25 with a group of brave participants, Robert Martini reached Lake Worth Beach on Florida’s east coast in 13 hours and 54 minutes. In doing so, he raised $2,500 for cystic fibrosis and an additional $1,335 for Sarasota’s Better Life Academy.
