Cetacea, a custom 42' Cutter and winner of a first place trophy the past 3 years, is seeking more Pirate wannabes and invites women (we have enough guys) that are reasonably agile and enjoy costume parties and acting out their inner demons to join this informative daysail. There is no fee requested, or accepted.
We'll enjoy sailing, a gourmet lunch on Angel Island, and discuss the forthcoming Opening Day on the Bay Parade, to be held Sunday, April 27. We have many pieces of Pirate and Piratess costume parts and I'll provide a link to online photos of the previous years Parades. The April issue of Bay Crossings magazine has last year's winning photo of my cabin boy being flogged on the foredeck <har har>.
Everyone will be placed on a wait list and I will advise, by Wednesday, how many will join our multi-year motley crew of Pirates. If you are concerned about canon fire in front of the gendarmes, male Pirates being forced into the water at sword-point by gangs of crazed or grogged Piratesses, or attempted seizures of the Judge's boat (SS Horatio Hornblower, a floating 3 story marshmallow and gasbag of minor insignificance), then this sailing event, and the one on April 27, are not for you.
So, who among you can handle a sword, fire a canon, or let fly a string of colorful prose of Lingua Pirata at the Judges?!
