On August 31, more than 2,000 paddlers in canoes and kayaks assembled in Suttons Bay, Michigan, to set a new world record for largest raft of canoes and kayaks to float together.
To qualify, the 2,099-person multicolored paddle mob had to be held together for at least 30 seconds. Guinness verified the record using aerial photos.
The event raised $50,000 for Sutton Bay Public Schools.
