Whats New
The Whydah: A Pirate Ship Feared Wrecked & Found - Martin W. Sandler
Launched in 1716 to ply the Triangular Trade route, the Whydah was designed to be fast and to hold large amounts of cargo, both material and human. Captain Prince had completed the sale of slaves brought from Africa to the Caribbean and had turned the Whydah toward England laden with riches when his ship was overtaken by one of the most successful pirates of the time.

Black Sam Bellamy sought not only fortune but a ship with a large capacity to carry it. He used the Whydah as his flagship and loaded it to the gunnels with loot. But on a stormy night in 1717, the Whydah ran aground on a sandbar off Cape Cod and sank.

Cape Codders salvaged what washed ashore. The governor of Massachusetts sent his best man to look for the rest...but nothing could be found. It was not until 1984 that marine archaeologists found the wreck and its treasure of old and priceless artifacts, as well as a wealth of historical evidence that changed much of what we thought about pirates.
