  Most sandcastles built in one hour: Adventure Wellington sets world record

Wellington, New Zealand -- Out of the 1764 official sandcastle that were built on Wellington's Lyall Bay Beach by over 100 excited volunteers from Adventure Wellington and measured, 241 didn't make the grade leaving them with a total 1523 sandcastles
- which sets the new world record for the Most sandcastles built in one hour, according to the World Record Academy: sandcastles built world record set by Adventure Wellington
 Photo: Adventure Wellington embarked on its greatest challenge yet, to break the Guinness World Record for the most sandcastles built in one hour. (enlarge photo)

  The Guinness world record for the most sandcastles built in one hour is 683 and was achieved by Yorkshire Water (UK) in Scarborough, Yorkshire, UK.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the tallest sand sculpture: 22.43 meters (73 ft 7 in), achieved at the 12th Gotone China Zhoushan International Sand Sculpture Festival in Zhujiajian, Zhoushan City, Zhejiang Province, China.

  Sir Richard Taylor, Lady Tania Roger, Martin Baynton and Weta Workshop designed and built special sandcastle buckets to help Adventure Wellington take this record.

  The Guinness World Records requirements for an official sandcastle were very specific and had to measure 2ft high and 2ft wide, with 4 turrets on top, had to be constructed within one hour for the Guinness World Record to be broken.

 Sandcastles are built to be smashed, Sandcastle world records are there to be smashed too. After the official announcement we suggested that every sandcastle could be smashed.

  It was amazing to see kids, teenagers, mums and dads, Nana's and Granddads running down the beach smashing everyone's huge fantastic fun morning and a great end to a perfect Sunday Morning in Wellington
