The Black Sails of Ramos

Fresh off his capture of “Calico” Jack and his pirate crew, which consisted of Anne Bonny and Mary Read, at Negril Point off Jamaica, pirate hunter Captain Jonathan Barnet of the Royal Navy’s Man-O-War Albion set his sights on one more infamous, Black Ramos. Barnet, a patriot to the Union Jack and on a mission from King George, was not shy about doing what needed to be done to capture pirates or kill them at sea. Ramos though was not an easy one to find. In fact, rumors abounded that Ramos could not be found, because “he was the hunter, not...

Captain Red Returns from Legend Cove

Reports suggest Captain Red entered Legend Cove in August 1717. Stories passed down from generation to generation say the Captain was the first to enter Legend Cove some 30 years prior to that fateful August, after being exiled by the Order of the Brethren of Pirate Lords.

And for the ensuing three decades, Captain Red pursued both treasure and the Order. Even pirates the likes of...
