London Man Sets Two Giant Pumpkin Boat Records
London resident Dmitri Galitzine has set two important pumpkin boat world records. He set the world record for the 100 meter paddle in one pumpkin boat. Galitzine, 27, then used another pumpkin boat, called The Miraculous, to become the first to sail across the Solent, a strait separating the Isle of Wight from the mainland of England.
Dmitri told ITN about how he became interested in pumpkin boats. He says, "I have always been fascinated by vegetables. When I found out they could float it seemed to make perfect sense."
