During Paddle Jam we will attempt to set a new Guinness Book World Record for the largest floating gathering of kayaks The current Guinness World Record for largest raft of canoes and kayaks consists of 3,150 boats and was achieved by One Square Mile of Hope (USA) in Inlet, New York, USA, on 13 September 2014. On Saturday, October 6, 2018 we attempt to set a New Guinness World Record on the Apalachicola River aiming to involve "raft up" over 3500 kayaks.
The event will take place at the confluence of the Apalachicola River and the Apalachicola Bay. Put-in locations will be spaced out at public landing and private marinas along the Apalachicola River. Kayaks will gather and be linked by boaters arm in arm or paddle to paddle and assembled for 30 seconds.
