Lock’n Paddle Event Breaks World Record
August 3, 2016 in Uncategorized
Here’s a birds-eye view of the Lock ‘n Paddle event on National Canoe Day (Sunday, June 26, 2016) at the Peterborough, Ontario Lift Lock, where 138 canoeist and kayakers broke the world record for the number of canoes and kayaks in a single lift lock. (The Lock rises 65 ft!)
The previous record for the most kayaks and canoes in a single lift lock was 101, set back in 2003.
The Lock ‘n Paddle event was organized by Parks Canada, The Canadian Canoe Museum, and the Land Canadian Adventures to raise awareness of National Canoe Day.
