The year is 1660. On the island of Tortuga, a haven for Caribbean rogues, the pirates from the ships in port are boasting about their skills. It seems that no one can agree on which ship is the fastest, which crew is the most skilled, and which captain is the most feared. As the quarrel gets louder and louder, one pirate finally makes himself heard above the rest: “I propose a contest! The captain and crew who win shall be proclaimed the best pirate ship in the Caribbean!” Before long, the crews are ready, the wind is right, and the sails are unfurled. The contest starts with the legendary shout, “To the Glory Islands!”
