It happened in Macquarie Harbour, off the west coast of Tasmania, as a group of 145 water skiers established a Guinness world record by all being towed simultaneously behind a single boat.

Check out this photoand the video here.

A 114-foot World Heritage Cruises catamaran was outfitted with a 308-foot-long boom to attach the ski ropes. The youngest entrant, Alexandria Seaton, was 12 years old.

My first question, of course, is why? That answer is shrouded in mystery.
