LACONIA, N.H. (AP) - Go, paddlers!

The New Hampshire Lakes Association says its simultaneous launch of 396 canoes and kayaks in less than 15 seconds on Lake Winnipesaukee this summer has set a new Guinness World Record.

The Aug. 3 event at LakeFest 2014: Raft-a-Palooza at Weirs Beach bested the previous record. That one was set in Tasmania last year with 308 boats.

The festival was a fundraiser for the association, which works to protect lakes and their watersheds through advocacy and education.
