Boat Sets World Record by Pulling 145 Waterskiers at Same Time (Video)
A watersking world record was set off the coast of Tasmania Friday when a boat pulled 145 waterskiers for a nautical mile. The feat took place at Macquarie Harbour in Strahan, and it broke a record set in the same place by the same group two years ago. Last time the group had 114 waterskiers complete the ride.
According to The Mercury, it took 15 seconds for the 3000 horsepower World Heritage Cruises catamaran Eagle to lift 154 people out of the water. Nine of the 154 waterskiers failed to make it for the entire ride and don’t count toward the world record.
