Whilst the pirates have been banished from Cayman shores for another year, they’ve left some good will behind.
Bernie Bush, director of Pirates Week, said that he and the team had received lots of positive feedback from attendees.
“It is not my place to say it was the best ever, but when the public, some of whom have been to 15 or 20 previous events, said it was the best ever and the biggest crowd, that is very pleasing.
“We feel we did a good job and accomplished what we tried to do,” he said.
Mr. Bush added that from the committee to sponsors and volunteers, it had been a joint effort with everyone working together to make the festival happen.
“The Caymanian Compass, SaxonMG, Department of Tourism and all the sponsors really are partners in the festival,” he said. “The districts really stepped up this year and I take my hat off to the volunteers who do all this for no money. It is a huge amount of work and a lot of respect is due to them.”
Mr. Bush praised the continued work of Pat Bazell-Taylor, whose long-standing affiliation with the festival, continued hard work and depth of knowledge was essential to all aspects of the process.
“Pat is awesome. She is sharp as anything and knows so much,” he said.
