The Pirates of Bermuda fundraiser will be held on March 24th.

A spokesperson said, “Bermuda Sloop Foundation [BSF] has announced its popular ‘Pirates of Bermuda Walk the Plank’ fundraiser is scheduled for 24 March on Front Street, Hamilton at No. 1 Car Park from 12pm – 2pm.

“The annual event helps raise funds for the Foundation’s programmes and Spirit of Bermuda. Hostages are ‘seized’ and the public makes donations to save them, or to sink them – having him/her ‘walk the plank’ into the winter chilly waters of Hamilton Harbour.

Jay Kempe, BSF co-founder and Board Chairman, said: “Spirit of Bermuda is a purpose-built training vessel for the youth of Bermuda and an established icon evoking the island’s distinguished maritime heritage. Since 2006 we have impacted the lives of over 8,000 students, equipping them with the skills needed to succeed in life. Our 5-day / 4-night residential character and educational development voyages for middle-school students are unique and the only programme of its kind operating in Bermuda to world class standards.

“Every year we count on the generosity of public and private donors to continue these programmes and maintaining Spirit – helping our young people develop social and emotional skills, facilitating careers in the maritime industry, and flying the flag for Bermuda at home and overseas.

“Pirates of Bermuda is our biggest fundraiser, and we look forward to it every year. This year we have some great sponsors providing food and beverages, including Goslings Ltd. and Bermuda Cupcake Company. It’s a fun family event and we hope you’ll come out to enjoy the day and support Bermuda Sloop Foundation.”

“If you’d like to support Bermuda Sloop Foundation and our youth development programmes on Spirit of Bermuda by sponsoring this event, email pirates@bermudasloop.org. Donations to BSF can be made at bermudasloop.org/donate or visit www.ptix.bm/pirates to sink or save a hostage.”
