The Pirate Times is “Under the Weather”

You may have noted that the Pirate Times is not posting as regularly as usual recently. This is due to a combination of illness and injury to some of our key team members. We will endeavour to resume normal service as soon as we can. We are looking for some writers to fill the gap and if you are interested in providing an article or two then now would be a good time to step forward.

We are also looking for more guest posts. Whenever you have anything newsworthy to tell the international pirates then write together a short (or long?) article. Our editorial team will help with proofreading and ensuring an objective tone is used before publication. Send your articles to

We hope and expect to be back to normal in a month or two. In plenty of time for some events and elections that will be of interest to all Pirates and associated parties and movements around the world.

We thank you for your patience,

Your Pirate Times Team.

Pirate Times turns 4 years!

Pirate Times turns 4 years!


Four years ago, on 13 August 2012, we published our first article. Since then we have published many more whilst remaining focused on our main objective with Pirate Times:
  • More international awareness between different pirate parties.
  • Spreading news internationally and sharing best practices regardless of borders.
To date we have had 42 authors (+many guest authors) that have published 737 articles (with an additional 26 translated to French, 49 to Spanish and 16 to Greek). In total we have written 725.664 words throughout these articles over the past three years.
