The greatest distance for an unsupported tightrope walk is 130 metres (429 feet) and was achieved by Bello Nock (USA) across a wire attached to poles onboard Royal Caribbean International's 'Majesty of the Seas' cruise ship, in Coco Bay, Bahamas, USA, on 10 November 2010.
Bello achieved this walk in approximately 15 minutes. He completed one length of the rope-a total of 429 feet. The tightrope used was a 6 x19 IWRC Galvanized 5/8 inch Aircraft cable (tractioned by a tractel tirfour) which was attached to points of the ship and was 20 metres (33 feet) above sea level. The ship was at sea at the time, 1/2 mile from the nearest land mass and 20 miles from any large land mass. He used a balancing pole and had a whole cruise ship full of holiday makers as spectators.
