Setting a World Record

I have applied to set 2 world records on the 29th June on the RIOW2014 Cruise:

1) The most number of RIBs to Circumnavigate the Isle of Wight at the Same time.

__________________________________________________ ______


2) The worlds biggest RIB Raft:

A RIB is a Rigid Inflatable boat. A RIB Raft is when RIBs join together while afloat by either ropes or by holding onto the next boat by hand.

The record will be set by boat owners meeting up on the sea and rafting up together, no RIB should be attached to Land or the seabed by anchor or any other means.

The RIBs must be afloat in a rafted state for one minute or more to qualify as a RIB Raft.

We are doing this to raise awareness of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Anything to do with water born World Records has to be sanctioned by the UIM in Monaco via the RYA and I do not fancy your chances of success in getting approval for this year as they both work very slowly. My advice would be to go for the publicity angle and not to bother with records. Alan P

I would consider trying it. It's not a sporting event, its a collection of boats on water so no "sport" records are being set.
