    Longest paddleboard journey set three world records

[Aug 14] MIAMI BEACH, FL-- Wyatt Werneth with a group of supporters set out from the beach at Miami Beach Florida on a journey that would take nine days to complete, for awareness during National Beach Safety / Boating Safety Week 2007.

    The mission was drafted to support National Beach Safety week and attempt to set a world record:The Longest paddle board journey up the coast of Florida.      

    Wyatt’s goal was to go non stop for 24 hours and attempt to set a paddle board record for the distance covered in 24 hours on top of the longest journey. This was completed at 103 miles from Miami Beach to Jupiter Inlet.

    After strong winds and rough surf became unsafe Wyatt left the gulf stream which is 6 miles off shore and kept to safer waters. After nine days Wyatt reached Jacksonville Beach, for a total of 345 miles.

    Wyatt Werneth is a Coast Guard Reserve and the Chief of Brevard County Ocean Rescue.

    Ric Hinman from 'Coastal Angler' Magazine:"Personally, Wyatt is one of the most amazing watermen I have ever met. He is totally committed to the safety and wellbeing of all who enter the ocean."

    Daniel F. Jacquish, CPP SET : "I must say, I had never heard of Wyatt before this event. Due to his affiliation with the Coast Guard, I was asked as an Auxiliarist to provide support for the event. To say I developed an admiration for his determination is an understatement. His "can-do" attitude and drive was astounding. How someone can paddle for that length of time and for that distance through head currents is something I would not have believed if I had not witnessed it myself."
