Australia’s Gold Coast steals Cayman’s bikini record

| 02/10/2011

(CNS): The world record for the longest bikini parade held by the Cayman Islands was stolen by Australia on Saturday when more than 350 bikini wearers paraded on the GlitterStrip along the Gold Coast to set a new Guinness World Record.  Cayman’s record of 331 set last years was exceeded by 26 bikini wearers as 361 women strutted their stuff along Cavill Avenue on to the Surfers Paradise beach but four had to be disqualified for being overdressed. Surfers Paradise councillor Susie Douglas told the local press that it was fitting the Gold Coast held the record. "We have beautiful beaches … we've got a great foreshore and got healthy young women and a sense of fun," she said.

The record breaking attempt was supported by the Surfers Paradise Alliance Australian and Guinness world record adjudicator Chris Sheedy was on hand to officially declare the attempt a success.

"Today 361 girls walked through the counter but there had to be a few disqualifications because they were not wearing bikinis," he said. "Unfortunately for the Cayman Islands they have had their record smashed."

It is understood that the Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association’s (CIASA) organizers of Cayman’s world record breaker last year won’t be taking this lying down and will be making an attempt to break this new record next year.

    Why can't men join in?  I can wear a bikini too.  In fact I often do.  Especially if work is going to be really stressful.  In fact I am wearing one right now.

    I was at the bikini parade last year in caymanand the CIASA arranged at  wrong date and time as many people were still at work!  Plan in correct date and time to get 800 girls, Saturday or Sunday midday.

    Cayman we can do this!  We can beat that number!  CIASA  I have an awesome idea for you,  Do it for Batabano/Pirates Week time.  That way it is part of the parade AND Cayman will beat the record.  It will be a double Whammy!  Try it for 500 people!  I like Batabano time better….does that correlate with american spring break time?  Let the spring breakers join!
