The longest distance sailed in a double-handed dinghy is 621.50 km (386.18 mi; 335.58 nm) and was achieved by Maruša Močnik and Uroš Kraševac (both Slovenia), between 30 May and 2 June 2021.

The four day journey of almost non-stop sailing took place from the coast of Umag to Dubrovnik, Croatia. The sibling duo from Layline sailing team, supported by a Slovenian sporting company Seascape, kept an online blog of their successful attempt. Sailing journeys can be unpredictable, and this one was no exception, complete with capsizes, mast-fixing, strong winds, no winds, cold weather and more. However, the attempt also included lots of singing, beautiful sailing and live facebook sessions to their followers. Maruša and Uroš both have experience with competitive sailing, and say that the whole experience was like a dream and receiving the Guinness World Records title is a cherry on top.
