Cannon Street Run XI - Talk Like a Pirate Day - Tuesday 20th Sept

Post by Going Underground » 30 Aug 2016, 13:15

Avast yee swabs!!!!

It be time for ye annual voyage around those choppy waters of the underground again and we be sailing a day late this time due to tricky tides and currents we can't weigh anchor on the 19th so will be sailing at 8 bells (18:30) from the port at Cannon Street on the 20th Sept
Hoisting of the mainsail can be delayed if need be due to a favourable waters and tide truning that evening.....

Ye must dock at all 64 ports in Zone 1
Ye can take any vessel in chosen direction after the tides have turned. So if ye wants to sail on Circle or District vessels in either direction ye can wait for chosen ship....

Grog afterwards at Ye Olde McD's, Warren Street, avast ye!!!!!!!

Arrrrrr Shiver me Timbers ye landlubberss......

Sailing
