The organisers called on locals and tourists to help build the 27,5 kilometre long sand castle in a bid to break the world record by over one metre, which is currently held by Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The continuous sand structure was required to stand 90 centimetre tall and have a width of 30 centimetres.
