most watersports in a day - Guy Cribb sets world
Dorset coastline, UK -- Guy Cribb,
40, from Poole, completed windsurfing and 20 other water-related
sports along the Dorset coast between Bournemouth and Poole,
over the course of 24 hours , setting the world record for
the most watersports in a day.
During the gruelling 11 hour stint Guy tackled
body boarding, stand-up paddleboarding, surfing, snorkelling,
sea kayaking, skim boarding, swimming, yacht chartering, power
boating, jetskiing, RIB-riding, ringo-ing, wake surfing, kitesurfing,
windsurfing, pedaloes, electronic boating, dinghy sailing,
Sunseeker yachting, catamaran sailing and wake boarding.
"I'm more tired than I thought I would be.
To do so many sports in a day is immense, rushing between
them and coordinating everything," he claims, adding that
the wide range of facilities in the area helped him to achieve
The challenge was set up by tourism officers from
Bournemouth and Poole. Cribb went waterskiing and bodyboarding
along the ten-mile stretch of coastline between Bournemouth
Mr Cribb, who is 13 times UK windsurfing champion,
said: "It's a Poole and Bournemouth record, I can't really
claim it for myself. It's all about the fact that you can
do so many sports in this area.
"Perhaps some of the big coastal cities like
Sydney could potentially have all these but probably not within
a 10-mile coastline."
Cribb has windsurfed for more than 20 years,
first becoming the UK youth champion in 1988 and in 2008 becoming
the first person to windsurf across the Channel, 70 miles
from Cherbourg to Poole.
