SHIVER ME TIMBERS,
IT'S A RECORD

More than 1,700 people with the instructions
to dress in fancy dress including a pirate style
hat, an eye patch, an accessory like a sword,
hook, musket, skull and crossbones flag or a
parrot, have set a new world record for
the largest ever gathering of
pirates in one place.

The record was set by 1,722 men, women
and children in Brixham, Devon.

The previous record of 1,651 was set in
Portland in America last year.
A
spokesman for Guinness World
Records said the British
record would be verified
in the coming weeks.


Karen Barnes, a spokesman for the Brixham
pirates, said: "We feel wonderful. I am
thrilled the town has beaten the record
by 250. Everywhere you went
there were pirates."
