To the delight of budding Jack Sparrow fans, Emirates Palace Marina in Abu Dhabi held its second annual Pirate Day to coincide with International Talk Like A Pirate Day last weekend.
An afternoon of watersport activities and competitions for kids of all ages saw over 50 children in pirate costume introduced to pirate-themed watersports. In conjunction with Emirates Palace Beach Club, The Yellow Boats and Al Mahara Diving, watery competitions included Tug of War; swimming races; Dolphin Jousting; water balloon fights; speedboat rides; and a treasure hunt.
Prizes for the individual competitions and best dressed pirate were also awarded. Though primarily organised for marina members, non-member families were also welcomed to sample the beautiful waterfront environment of Emirates Palace Marina, and to see their new vessel – a real-life pirate ship made from plastic waterbottles!
