Sinai Divers
More then 2400 divers have smashed the old Guinness World Record

According to a mass dive off Manado, Indonesia has smashed the Guinness World Record for the largest number of divers in the water. More than 2400 divers entered the ocean off Malalayang beach, Sulawesi on August 16th. To take the record the divers stayed together for at least 31 minutes to take the record.

The previous record was set 2006 in the Maledives by 979 people. Guinness still has to confirm the number of divers of the new record. The event was run as part of the Sail Bunaken festival. A cabinet minister and two governors joined the divers. Only 51 non-Indonesian divers took part. (jdo)
