Ahoy there me hearties

I think it’s fair to say that Hastings is slightly obsessed with pirates. Gathered at Pelham Beach, over 14,000 sea dogs, Jack Sparrows, Blue Beards et al descended on the shingle to take the crown from Penzance for the largest gathering of pirates in the same place. There was even a pirate wedding, in which the bride and groom were dressed as pirates (of course) but so were the  deputy superintendent registrar and deputy registrar who both got into the spirit.

Sorry Penzance – you might have pasties, but you will never have the pirates. Until next year me hearties.
