Pirates on Penzance Prom – World Record Attempt

26 May

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.

    Who wouldn’t want to be a Pirate for a day. Only smiles do I see in the participants.

      It was! Shame about the record though – missed by 77 people!

      Off and on! There were a couple of very heavy showers but it didn’t put people off. 🙂
