Ahoy, me Hearties!
If you didn’t have a parrot, a peg leg, a hook or an eye patch, you would have felt like a right landlubber on Friday as hundreds of pirates converged, once again, on Hastings Old Town, to turn it into a Pirate town.

Last year, the pirates of the channel claimed the world record for the greatest number of pirates in one place. This year they created a world first – as hundreds of pirates gathered on the beach to form a human skull and crossbones (Jolly Roger), to be photographed from the air.
