Bermuda Sloop Foundation announced the postponement of this weekend’s planned Pirates of Bermuda event, due to a “combination of weather uncertainty and other logistics”.

The organisation’s biggest fundraiser of the year, has been pushed back to Sunday, March 18 and moved to Albuoy’s Point.

Foundation Executive Director, Branwen-Smith-King, said: “Of course it is very disappointing to have to make last-minute changes to a planned event due to unforeseen circumstances.

“We hope spectators will come out on March 18th to watch this annual family event. Our hard-working hostages will continue to entreat their friends, family members, and colleagues to contribute to saving them from walking the plank,” she added.

We encourage everyone to visit to see who the hostages are and to contribute to Spirit of Bermuda’s youth.

All funds raised go directly to the middle school student voyages.

The Sloop Foundation invites the Bermuda public to come out to Albuoy’s Point on Sunday, March 18th, to witness the fate of the 53 hostages, and find out whether they will be saved or walk the plank.

There’s lots of food, fun and entertainment planned for all, from 2pm until approximately 4pm.
