New world record holders for distance paddling in a Dragon Boat occurred in February of 2016. Congratulations on a paddle well done.
21-paddlers from the San Pedro del Pinatar club, Spain have broken the Guinness World Record for the longest distance travelled in a Dragon Boat with an astonishing tally of 188 kilometres in 24-hours.
The Spanish paddlers overcame difficult conditions to go beyond the previous tally of 186.54 kilometres set by Australian crew, Komodo Dragons.
The new mark now stands at 188 kilometres and was reached at 11:00am in the morning after a long night of paddling with winds topping the 20-knots-per-hour mark.
