114 People, 1 Boat

A little off topic here, but thought I’d pass this along anyways…

There’s a new world record (recognized by Guinness World Records) in water skiing… The most water skiers towed behind a single boat is 114 by the Horsehead Water Ski Club (Australia) in Strahan, Tasmania, Australia, on March 28, 2010.

I know it’s not barefooting, but it is still one hell of a record.  If you check out their website, near the top the have a very wide picture that’ll give you an idea of just how many people 114 people are.

Also, (currently) near the top of the website you can find a link to download the footage taken from The Eagle (the boat that pulled the skiers). You can see that it was a very slow pull.

Here’s some news footage of the record…
