Alec Young, Vice President, Royal Hobart Regatta Association writes:
You will recall how you were part of the 2013 Guinness World Record Breaking event, organised by the Royal Hobart Regatta Association; the simultaneously launching of the greatest number of canoes and kayaks. Well, the Americans have subsequently broken our record and I am inviting you and your friends and acquaintances to help us take back the record on Saturday 11 February. If you have a craft that takes more than one person please be aware that the craft will only be counted by the adjudicators if has just one occupant. The rules are clear, only one occupant per craft. To register please go to http://www.royalhobartregatta.com/Kayak%20and%20Canoeing.html. Spread the word!'
