Hello everyone,

*Holds his recall rune tight*
I am Lord Gareth from Chesapeake. I have come here to see if The United Pirates are still interested in hosting the next Boat Race Challenge.

The Pirate Language is so Grand and Sophisticated, I fear trying to "Fake Talk" my way through it would be taken as an insult. I do not wish to insult such Strong and famous Pirates. Below I have put together the setup information for the event. If the most feared and Legendary captain in all of the shards, Captain Hawkeye Pike, son of Captain Blackeye Pike agrees to host then I hope to get things started as soon as possible.

Ahoy Lord Gareth, welcome aboard.

I am sure the Cap'n will be along shortly with his official response.

Myself, I would step forward for the boatswain position... as long as the Cap'n or equally skilled crew member provides the advertisement poster. The good news is that the Red Skull Bay docks are but a short stagger from the Jolly Roger Tavern... for a little before and after race socialization.

So the landlubber wants to risk another fleet... So be it. We will gladly host this boat race. Let us meet in person (so far I have seen none of the promised gold) and we will talk things over. Especially the required ale supply fer da pirate crew is not ta be underestimated. I'd prefer a day with bad weather fer the boat race.
