the haven of one of the leading Pirate Re-enactment Groups in
the UK. Based in Scotland we sally forth where ever there may
be reward, our 2003 adventure in Whitehaven saw us entertain a
crowd that over two days nearly numbered 200,000.
pirates of the late seventeenth century were the fall out
of the endless wars that had plagued Europe that century.
Many could not adjust to the periods of peace and took to
the seas to seek their fate. Similarly we, in the main,
are 17th century re-enactors who through lack of large battles
to re-enact have sought solice in piracy.
