Raft-Off 2018: A GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® Official Attempt for the Largest Boat Tie-up
NautiBuoy℠ (event organizer) brings awareness to Lake St. Clair through safely and officially setting a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Largest boat tie-up in Lake St. Clair’s Muscamoot Bay (Michigan), a popular tie-up spot inaccessible by land, in accordance with guidelines established by GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS.
Lake Cumberland Association holds the current title on Lake Cumberland, Kentucky, achieved on August 14, 2010, with 1,651 boats. Weekend attendees at Muscamoot Bay’s tie-ups pride themselves as they claim their tie-ups are the largest, yet they have loomed under only an unofficial title after many previous attempts were unsuccessful.
Unlike previous attempts, GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS will be present this time. Beyond securing that essential requirement, NautiBuoy’s approach reveals extensive planning: (1) use of technology (e.g., social media, drones, online registration, etc.); (2) promotion and education at Raft-Off Rallies (registration events); (3) staff dress rehearsal; and (4) mandatory pre-registration for accountability, which means the day of Raft-Off is dedicated to the safe and efficient formation of boats.
Participating boats must fly this flag, which is included in registration, for GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS to accept your boat in the count.
Show the world your official participation in this once-in-a-lifetime event (available in tiered registrations).
