Darwin – Australia’s world-record-setting-rocksitters held a “rocktail party” on their rock off Darwin’s East Point last night.
The celebration was to mark their fourth day of non-stop rocksitting, and to commemorate the birthday of Mr. Barry (Bazza) Ledwidge.
Mr Ledwidge, 31, one of the rocksitters, cut into a birthday “rock cake” presented to him by his fellow sitters.
During the “rocktail party” members of the marathon sit-a-thon were often forced to become rockstanders as a high tide lapped over parts of their rock (pictured).
The rocksitters – five men and three women – started last Saturday on their marathon rock sit-a-thon following a challenge to their work supremacy by a rocksitting club at Whangarel, New Zealand.
Rules of the marathon rocksit state that the male sitters must drink 18 cans of beer a day and female sitters nine cans. The sitters have reported no difficulties in drinking their quotas.
The sitters say they will decide today when to end their marathon.
