HUNDREDS of kayakers paddled out into Claisebrook Cove on April 9 for the annual “Unite on the Swan” Guinness record attempt to form the largest raft of kayaks and canoes ever.

With a count of 263 craft, they’re still 2,887 short of the world record, but it sure looked pretty, and organisers say this year’s attempt gave them the basis to mount a more serious challenge in 2018.

Plus, we at least beat the rival event in South Australia, which only just managed to get 200 boats on the water due to rough weather (also the registration price raised money for breast cancer).
