We joined dozens of Pirates on Redruth station platform this afternoon and by the time the train arrived in Penzance it was packed with Pirates of all ages, all going to try to regain the Guinness Book of Records World Record which we held in 2011 but which Hastings took in 2012. We had to beat 14,231. Very sadly we missed this by only 77, being a gathering of 14,155. However, despite the heavy showers and not quite making the record, a fantastic day was had by all and at least £14,155 was raised for the Royal National Lifeboat Institute who do such a wonderful job around our coasts. The whole day was one of jollity and good humour and the costumes were brilliant. Click on any photo for detail.
