Well, my humble little blog about water skiing has officially gone world wide. One of the organizers of the recent world record for number of skiers behind one boat has thanked me for the coverage of their many attempts and finally of their record.
David Bennett, one of the organizers of the event grew up in a family without a boat, but his family did join a local family based ski club and learned to ski and now will ski on just about anything... trampolines (on skis), ladders, milk crates on disks, bench seats and even computer keyboards and laptops. He's taught nearly 1000 people how to ski.
For those of you that have built the show ski pyramids in the states, here's something you may find interesting, They used an awful lot of ropes for that record...
That be a whole lot of ropes that they had to get the same length. Put that together with the engineering to devise something to pull that many people from a deep water start and you have quite the record.
