Before this goes crazy here's what I was proposing and this is just a proposal. The team was going to be called the Buccaneers (in my mind anyway) and not the pirates, there was to be an association, not an off-shoot. There are no plans for kit as yet as most people would continue to wear their pirate kit. There's never be a plan to hijack the pirate kit or sell advertising space that others have to wear. Individuals can do what they want to their own kit currently, no one has stopped people adding names or personal sponsors in the past.
The main aim is to provide a vehicle for those looking to improve, maybe to Kona standard, not something that was every thought of back in 2004 but times change. This is not trying to take the helm of PSOF but sit complimentary beside it.
The marketing bit is an aside, I was looking to get a few things for the team but it was suggested and rightly, that we should try and get something that all people could use. There’s no sign-up or proof of pirate authenticity etc.
Candy – injunctions, FFS, get a grip man.
So there it is.
Not trying to take the helm? um, sorry but it looks exactly like that to me.
