A salty captain from a Welsh family, Jones fled to the United States after the Revolutionary War and worked for the King as a privateer. Curly Jones settled in one of his favourite ports, St. Andrews by-the-Sea. There he met and married a feisty woman who had worked her way up, earning her own sailing papers.
Through unethical deeds, Jones soon amassed a large loot. Fed up of paying his share to the King, he decided to go into business for himself and became a pirate instead. Curly’s long trips take him up and down the Eastern Seaboard to the West Indies and beyond. Along the way he’s found short love affairs with beautiful women from the many islands dotting the coast. Although his own wife is not always on board, she knows of his many trysts through the local gossip about town.
Have a craving to sail the high seas? Curly’s recruiting for his next scandalous adventure. His sailors aren’t always well paid, if at all. Still everyone is eager to get their hands on some of his loot… in exchange for all of the hard work he has put them through.
Will Captain Curly Jones survive another trip out to sea?
May your anchor be tight,
your cork be loose,
your rum be spiced,
and your compass be true.
