We're going to do it again! Last year a group of kayakers gathered in West Grand Traverse Bay in an attempt to break the Guinness world record for the World's Largest Raft of Kayaks and Canoes. The current world record is 1,903 boats, and last year we had 1,750 kayaks and canoes come together for the first attempt to break the record at what has now become known as "Floatilla." This year, we will do the Floatilla once again but are determined that 2013 will be the record-breaking year!

Our buddies at M22 are one of the sponsors for this very cool event.
Are you in? If you're in Northern Michigan and would like to be a part of this record-breaking event, be sure to have your kayak out there at 1 pm because that's when they're taking the official count.
Is your hometown known for any world records? Let us know, we'd love to hear from you!
