Inlet’s Guinness World Record Attempt 

September 13, 2014

Despite the cool, damp weather, over 3,150 boats with participants from 31 states, 2 Canadian Provinces, Thailand and Belgium converged on Fourth Lake in Inlet, NY on September 13 to shatter the Guinness World Record for the largest raft of canoes, kayaks and guideboats.

The raft, held together only by hands, fulfilled a Guinness rule by free-floating for at least 30 seconds.  A seaplane carrying photographer Nancie Battaglia flew overhead capturing what will become Inlet’s third record-breaking event.  A second plane piloted by Jim Payne, containing videographer Lori Diemer, recorded the moment for the Guinness Committee.  Earlier, videographer Eric Mishalanie with the assistance of Casey Hamlin recorded the entry process as each boat picked up a numbered sticker and moved into the raft-up area.

All of this video and photographic evidence has been sent off to London so that Guinness can verify the accuracy of the count.

One Square Mile of Hope Committee co-chairs Carolyn Belknap and Connie Perry thank the committee members, Kiwanis Club of the Central Adirondacks, and our participants and sponsors for their dedicated support that made our success possible.

Inlet has once again lived up to its title of “The Little Town That Could,” and did.
