There are many world records – this is just one of them!
 
A message in a bottle has been lost at sea for almost a century and has even claimed a world record (which has been confirmed by the Guinness World Record Officials). The 97-year-old letter discovered just off the Shetland Isles claimed the title for the longest time a bottle has been adrift at sea by five years. If you’re wondering who found it then wonder no more, the bottle was discovered by a Scottish skipper, Andrew Leaper, as he hauled in his fishing nets. He said it was like winning the lottery when he found the bottle. Well, I suppose you would think that if you’re used to only catching fish!
 
The previous record holder was Mark Anderson who was also on board when the bottle was found. I don’t think Mark would be very happy with his friend for taking his record away from him, do you? The bottle was part of a batch of 1,890 released as part of a scientific research project to map the currents of the seas around Scotland. Only 315 have been found.
