world record attempt

Marcel Bregstein, Assistant General Manager of The Toronto Hunt, will make an official attempt to break the World Guinness Book of Records for the number of champagne bottles sabred in 60 seconds. The current record is 40 bottles. Marcel will use a special sabre, donated for the event, and he will have to open close to one bottle per second using strict guidelines to open the bottles. Opening bottles with a sabre goes back to the time of Napoleon. "In victory one deserves it; in defeat one needs it!"
