Guinness World Record set at skydiving centre near Newark
A pair of skydrivers achieved a new world record recently at Skydive Langar near Newark.
Expert skydivers Emily Aucutt and Josh Carrat, in partnership with Carex, have been awarded a Guinness World Records title for the ‘Most high and low fives by a pair in a single sky dive’.
The attempt was achieved by the two daredevils in a bid to encourage the public to feel confident about getting back together safely by carrying sanitiser on the go, wherever they are and however they travel, by car, train, plane or even parachute.
Emily Aucutt is British Skydiving Instructor of the Year as well as an ex-nurse who has been working on the frontline of the Covid-19 pandemic administering vaccines. Josh Carratt is the director at Skydive Langar.
The incredible feat of a world record was achieved at the Langar Airfield near Grantham. The expert diving pair, had to achieve a minimum of 30 high and low fives during a sky diving freefall to be awarded the record. They achieved an astonishing 32 high and lows fives within the 63.3 second freefall – of course fully sanitised by Carex.
Emily Aucutt, who took part in the attempt and was recently awarded British Sky Diving Instructor of the Year, said: "When Carex approached us to take part in the world record, we were ecstatic.
"Not only to be a part of an incredible campaign, but also to work with a brand that takes safety so seriously. Sky Diving is an extreme sport, so safety is imperative, and we know that Carex really understands that!
"The attempt was a lot more challenging than we had initially thought but we persevered and are so elated to have achieved this Guinness World Records title in partnership with Carex."
Sameen Kenway, Carex senior brand manager said: "This particular record title has never been attempted before so we are thrilled to have achieved it in partnership with Emily and Josh.
"As we begin to return to normality, naturally many of us are nervous about being in contact with others again, we want to offer them all the care and protection they need to feel confident when out and about.
"So we are encouraging everyone to Always Carry Carex wherever they go so they can enjoy being back together with people again."
