VACAVILLE — Residents will have an opportunity this month to try to break a world record while raising awareness of swimming and water safety at the Graham Aquatic Center.

The city’s Community Services Department will host an attempt June 20 to set a new Guinness World Records mark for the world’s largest swimming lesson in unison with tens of thousands of people at pools around the world, according to a Vacaville press release.

A team of 32,450 participants representing 13 different countries across five continents hold the current record for the largest simultaneous swimming lesson, according to the release.

Vacaville will host this year’s global record attempt at 8 a.m. Participation is free.

Pre-registration for the record attempt is required by Tuesday and available at Three Oaks, McBride and Ulatis community centers.
