Oz water-skiers smash world record

London, Wed, 01 Feb 2012 ANI

London, Feb 1 (ANI): A group of 145 water-skiers in Tasmania successfully marked their way to a new world record for the highest number to be pulled behind a single boat.


A total of 154 skiers from all over the world set off on the record attempt to ski a full nautical mile inside Australia's Macquarie Harbour in Strahan, the Telegraph reported.


In spite of nine skiers falling along the way, the rest of them were sufficient enough to beat the previous record of 114 set by the same team.


The 114ft catamaran, which usually takes tourists on tours of the area, was particularly modified with different propellers and a 308ft aluminium boom to thwart skiers' ropes from becoming tangled.


According to the organizers, five miles of ski rope was used for the new record, which The Guinness Book of Records is expected to officially acknowledge within the next few months. (ANI)
