    *The Admiral's Cup (Friday, May 22nd, 8pm EST)*

    At 8pm EST sharp, the most venturous and skilled mariners will meet at the Jolly Roger Inn to compete with one another. At a signal, the seafarers will start and follow a given route, where they have to pass certain check points. The rules are simple:
    • Bring yer favorite vessel and yer sea legs!
    • The whole journey has to be done by ship.
    • The check points will be explained in advance. You have to sail past those check points in the correct order, and make sure that the person waiting there recognizes you (shout your name).
    The mariner who returnes to the Jolly Roger Inn first, wins the cup!

    The whole sailing trip will take approximately one hour.


    *Pirate Beach Party (Saturday, May 23rd, 8pm EST)*

    On Saturday, we invite everybody - both landlubbers and seafarers - to come to our beach party in the pirate village. We will do games, we will gamble and bet, we will hold tournaments and beast fights. Bring some gold for gambling! Bring a weapon (bought from an NPC vendor) for tournaments and fighting! Bring high spirits! Ale is free.


    Both events will start at the Jolly Roger Inn in Trammel:

    By the way, it can help a lot using a tool called UO AutoMap, get used to using boats, be acquainted with the boat commands or with plotting a course on a sea chart.
