Ah, but they tried. That’s more than half the fun.
Organizers for the Suttons Bay Floatilla, the attempt at setting a new world record for the largest raft of canoes and kayaks, managed to pull together 1,750 boats this past weekend, according to a story on MLive today. The group is reported as planning to try again next year.
For now the record remains 1,902 canoes and kayaks. That was set last September on Fourth Lake in New York’s Adirondacks. That event was called “One Square Mile of Hope.” It was sponsored by the Central Adirondack Paddlers Society.
Shoot, with all those paddles, they could have re-organized and formed the world’s biggest spanking machine.
