North carolina?I have been there i played a gig many years ago,i went to a museum that i read an exhibit about pirates,it talked about how Blackbeard blockaded the harbour sank five ships and ransomed the town early 18th century i think.


Actually ,I am sorry Richard but my spelling is often poor....I meant to type Charlestown...............it is a little Georgian port in Cornwall....it's really quaint and unspoilt( for the moment at least).
There is a Shipwreck and Heritage Centre there and always a tall ship,usually undergoing some restoration.
If you happen to be there at the right time,you can see her sailing out of the port...............................................

No doubt you are 'au fait 'with Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell ?
