145 Water-skiers set a new World Record

Dozens of 145 have set a new world record after 145 people were pulled behind a single boat. Some 154 skiers from around the world gathered in Macquarie Harbour in Strahan on the west coast of Tasmania for the record attempt.

The skiers needed to stay upright for a full nautical mile (1.85 kilometer) in order to qualify for the record books. But even though nine unlucky participants were unable to last the distance, the 145 who did manage to remain on their skis easily beat the previous record of 114.

The record is expected to be confirmed by Guinness World Records officials, who witnessed the event, in the coming weeks.
