Have you ever heard that the female Chinese pirate Cheng I Sao commanded a fleet of 1500 ships with 80.000 pirates in the early 19th century? And that the two pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read both found piracy disguised as male pirates in the early 18th century and eventually found each other and went down in history as notorious buccaneers? No? Neither did we for a long time and that’s why we want to revive a bit of invisible (made) history together and use our beautiful ship to dive into the lives of different pirates together with you.
    Our idea: We bring a few biographies of pirates and work on them together with different creative approaches. For example, we could use storytelling, theater, creative writing or photography. We will have some of this with us, and some of it will emerge in the course of the trip. And of course there will be a lot of sailing, laughing and feasting and we will see/ find out? together what we feel like doing.
    In order to organize our trip together in the best possible way, we invite you in advance to 1-2 (of course voluntary) online preparation meetings. There we can collect ideas and plan the trip. You don’t have to bring any practical sailing experience.
    All FLINTA* are invited, i.e. women, lesbians, inter-, non-binary-, trans- and agender-persons. Children are also welcome. We are looking forward to seeing you!
