Torrevieja has got an entry pending in the next edition of the Guinness Book of Records, thanks to the sailors of last weekend’s Dragon Boat International festival, who achieved the greatest distance traveled over a 24-hour period in the dragon boats.

A total of 180 sailors from across the world took part in the successful record-breaking event, beating the current record-holders from Hong Kong.

The relay in Torrevieja (finishing photo from Objectivo Torrevieja) traveled 266 kilometres, trumping the old Hong Kong record by 19 kilometres.

The various crews sailed around the 1.4-km course in the bay from 9.00 pm on the Saturday for 24 hours.
