For the young, or the young at heart, who wish to sail the Spanish Main aboard a pirate ship, here is your chance to learn some basic skills.  There will be a short history of piracy, you will learn how to talk like a pirate, and some basic sailing terms.  You will learn how to use a compass, how to make and read a treasure map, and some basic knot tying.  Those who sign on will require some courage to try new things and make new friends.
