The Pirates of Penzance are back; around 20 thousand of them.

That is the target as the town attempts to reclaim its world record for the most pirates in one place on Bank Holiday Monday.

It is part of Penzance's first Maritime Festival, with traditional boats in the harbour, live music and theatre.  

The whole thing is raising money for the RNLI.

Patch Harvey is Coxswain of the Penlee Lifeboat: "It costs about a hundred and fifty million a year just to keep the RNLI afloat. That's without building new lifeboats and new lifeboat stations and, you know, just maintenance alone so to get that sort of money in one day, for this area, is massive.

"I'm sure we'll break the record. We're going to take the lifeboats along the Prom so people can see what the money goes towards. All the crew are volunteers so they take time off and put their lives at risk for people they don't know so it's a real great cause."
