Durham, NC - DAN Boater, the world’s premier travel safety association, proudly announces it has joined the America’s Great Loop Cruiser’s Association (AGLCA) as a Commander Sponsor.

AGLCA is an organization of 6,000-plus active members who share a sense of adventure and a curiosity about America’s Great Loop, the continuous waterway that encompasses the eastern portion of North America—including the Atlantic and Gulf Intracoastal Waterways, the Great Lakes, the Canadian Heritage Canals, and the inland rivers of America’s heartland. AGLCA’s primary purpose is to disseminate information and enhance the overall experience for those learning about, dreaming of, and safely cruising America’s Great Loop.

“We at DAN Boater are aware of the care, planning, and responsible seamanship that Loopers—as those traveling The Great Loop are fondly called—put into their cruising,” says William Ziefle, President and CEO of DAN. “And we look forward to keeping them safe, whether they are weekend cruisers or planning to go full circle.”

Adds AGLCA Director, Kimberly Russo, “We welcome DAN Boater as a Commander Sponsor. The benefits they offer are a perfect fit for our members, providing travel and medical emergency services both on land and on water—throughout the Loop and worldwide.”
