114 Australian water skiers broke the world record for the most people water skiing. The boat, a huge catamaran, had to tow all of the water skiers for 1 nautical mile. The record was broken in Tasmania, Australia.
The previous waterskiing record was 100 people, achieved in Cairns, Queensland and has been held for 20 years! There have been a number of attempts in Tasmania, this year and finally they seem to have been successful. Although they are still awaiting final ratification from the world record authorities.
I love the quote from the guy on the boat, “Hang on you buggers!!”.
And a true Australian celebration at breaking the world water skiing record!
