Raft Up at Vashon Island


LINDSEY WASSON / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Beulah Ellison-Taylor, bottom right, 7, shields her eyes as she looks up at a drone taking a group photo as Cara Aguilera holds onto her kayak during a world record attempt for most kayaks and canoes rafted up, or held together, at Raft Up at Jensen Point on the waters of Quartermaster Harbor at Vashon Island on Aug. 17, 2014. While the unofficial count was only at about 300 boats, "people had a lot of fun," said Kathleen Barry Johnson, Executive Director at Vashon Youth & Family Services, the organization the event raised money for. Sutton's Bay, Mich. holds the current record at 2,099 boats set in 2013.
