Video: Pirates of Bermuda Hostages Walk Plank

March 11, 2014

The Pirates of Bermuda took a few dozen people “hostage” this past Sunday [Mar 9] — but all in the name of a good cause.

Organised by the Bermuda Sloop Foundation as part of its fundraising for the “Spirit of Bermuda” sail training programmes, friends and family were able to choose to donate towards a hostage’s ransom — or towards him or her having to walk the plank into the waters of the Hamilton Harbour.

Members of the public descended on Front Street in order to witness the fate of the hostages, with each either being freed with their charitable ransom paid, or being made to walk the plank.

The group of “hostages” listed as taking part in this year’s fundraising event include Karen McDonald, Alan Burland, Juan Prado, David Goodwin, Dr. Michael Ashton, Kirk Kitson, Paul Markey, Patrick Dill, Charles Penruddocke, Martha Kirkland, Jesse Kirkland, Tom Hebert-Evans, Andrew Mendonca, David Kendell, Mark Clarke, Alexis Swan, Mark Berry, and David Skinner.

Also listed were Scott Pearman, Rebecca Roberts and Justin O’Keefe, Glenn Clinton, Somers Cooper, Blythe Walker, Rikki Hornett, George Hayward Jr., Kevin O’Donnell, Ambrose Gosling, Bishop Nick Dill, James Watlington, Morris O’Brien, Greg Wojciechowski, Christian Dunleavy, Christian Dunleavy, Bill Pollett, Bonnie McGlynn, Stephen Outerbridge, Graham Pewter, Peter Frith, Captain Clifford Powell, Kiernan Bell, Josh Bento, Terry Pimentel, Monica Dunstan, Layton Outerbridge, Joel Duffy, Hugh Conyers, Jenny Goodwin, Sharon Beesley, and Patrick Outerbridge.
