The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant just broke a world record for London!
The fleet of over 419 boats (expected to be over 1000 by the end of the attempt) took the record for the world’s largest parade of boats, beating the previous record of 327 boats in Germany in April 2011. To break the record, the boats had to maintain a minimum distance of 2 boat lengths and cover a minimum of 2 miles – the route actually covered 7 miles.
This is the 16th record London has broken this year, only 4 more to go to hit the goal of 20.
