Description:
Ahoy there, mateys!

Arrrhhhh ...... you looking for adventure and excitement? Do you long for a life that is free from the restrictions, limitations, and boredom of everyday life? Would you like to travel to exotic places and see the world? Can you see yourself at sea, with the wind blowing through your hair as you scan the horizon with your spyglass from high up in the crow’s nest of your ship, looking for treasure-laden Spanish galleons to prey upon? Would you like to learn how to fight with a cutlass or be trained as part of a gun crew, firing the ship’s massive cannons? If so . . .
It’s the Pirate’s life for you!

But, not so fast, me hearty! What exactly is a pirate? Is a pirate’s life everything that you have been led to believe? Do books and movies about pirates give us an accurate picture of what it was really like to be one? What is life aboard a ship really like? What were the dangers of pirating? Perhaps you had better look a little closer into the world of the pirate before you jump aboard. You can learn everything you need to know in... This presentation is for people of all ages. Presenter, Arn Kind, will separate the myths from the facts about piracy, from ancient times to modern day pirates. He will get down to the nitty gritty of what piracy was, and is all about.
