The current Guinness Record for the Worlds fastest bath-tub, stands at 42.25 mph.
Anyone with half an ounce of engineering skills could put a big engine on the back of a bath and beat 42.25 mph. But where's the beauty in that? There’s no petrol involved here. This record attempt is under sail power alone.
My quest: To go faster than any bathtub in the world for The Pied Piper Appeal, and attempt to break the 50 mph barrier using only the wind.
This bath is a thing of beauty to sail, and given the right place, at the right time, in the right conditions, I think that it might just be possible.
Here is a brief clip from the first speed trial on Weston Super Mare beach: www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRVZ8WZBh6w
I’d very much like to use this as a way to raise awareness and funds for The Pied Piper appeal in Gloucester – it is a great cause - if you’re interested in sponsoring Bath Time, or would like to make a contribution please donate...
With my thanks,
