Molokai joins world’s largest swimming lesson record attempt.

Maui County News Release

The early bird catches the worm – or, in this case, the world record.

Maui County is joining organizers around the world in an attempt to set the Guinness World Record for largest swimming lesson.

On Thursday, June 3, simultaneous lessons will take place at over 175 sites worldwide — including Cooke Memorial Pool on Molokai. Participants must be registered, in position and ready to begin the lesson prior to 4:00 a.m., the official start time. Registration begins at 3 a.m. All ages are welcome and there is no cost to participate. The lesson will last 45 minutes.

Sites joining the attempt stretch from Africa, the Middle East, Europe, Asia and across North America.

The event is part of an effort by the nation’s leading water safety and training organizations to promote the message that swimming lessons save lives. For more information, visit www.worldslargestswimminglesson.org or contact Michael Mangca at 553-5819 or michael.mangca@co.maui.hi.us.
