Dubai is all set to secure yet another spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.

The city that’s already home to the world’s fastest police car as well as the largest man-made island (and more, much more) is looking to set the record for the largest swimming lesson.

The family-friendly event is set to take place at 9pm on Thursday, June 22, in Wild Wadi’s Wave Pool.

In order to set the record, the city needs to teach over 25,000 people how to swim, all at once.

This means that you (should you wish to go) will be joined by thousands of participants from across the globe.

Keen swimmers from over 500 different locations, spanning across 20 countries will be joining the session remotely.  

To secure your spot in the possible record-breaking event, email your attendance confirmation to info@wildwadi.com, who will get back to you with further information.

Now that we have all the details out of the way, let’s have a quick GIF play by play of how the event will go down…
