We are attempting a Guinness World Record for the most kayaks and canoes launched simultaneously. The existing record is 396, achieved by New Hampshire paddlers when they broke our previous record in 2014. We are certain that we can go past this. You will need to be on the beach at 10am to sign in with your designated steward. The launch will be from Bellerive Beach at 11am on Saturday 11 February 2017.
After the launch serious paddlers are invited to take a leisurely paddle of approx. 2.5km to the Regatta Grounds and engage in either a short or a long race, both starting soon after mid-day.
