During National Beach Safety/Boat
Safety Week in 2007, Wyatt Werneth, who is Coast Guard Reserve and the Chief of
Brevard County Ocean Rescue, took a group of supporters and began his mission to
set the world record for the longest paddleboard journey along the coast of
Florida. After twenty-four hours of continuous boarding, Werneth achieved his
goal 103 miles from Miami Beach to Jupiter Inlet. It was nine days before he
reached Jacksonville Beach, making his entire journey a total 345 miles.
Wyatt not only completed his goal of setting the
world record for the longest paddleboard up the coast of Florida but he also set
two other world records as well. The second was the longest paddleboard distance
in twenty-four hours; and he also set the world record for the greatest distance
covered in nine days on a paddleboard.
