~ AHOY MATEY! ~ Abandoned gun platforms and anchored near-derelict ships – like Radio Caroline pictured below – housed pirate radio stations in the 1960’s, broadcasting forbidden rock-n-roll and soul music to listeners within reach of their AM signals.
In the same free-spirit, twenty-first century radio ‘pirates’ are leaving the heavily regulated and limited coverage of AM and FM in their wake, in favor of Internet streaming and the new digital HD Radio. Pyrate Radio is a commercial HD Radio and broadband network portal, anchored in ‘Trop Rock’ and island music – a reminder of the joy of sailing away to ‘Live the Dream.” Tradewinds Radio and Cruising Outpost Magazine thank you for years of loyalty and invite you to join as a founder of Pyrate Radio.
Come sail the BVI May 27-June 3. Performing at Corsairs, Foxys, Bomba Shack, Myett’s and more!Please call Bridgette at 888.703.3173 ext 47012 for group bookings. Refer to the Eric Stone Flotilla 2017. Bridgette will handle grouping people together on vessels if you would prefer to share costs and/or need a skipper. Visit our website at IslandEric.com

Once again, Tradewinds Radio was pleased to be a sponsor of the Cruising Outpost Cruisers Party at the Strictly Sail Miami Boat Show. This was the 19th year of Latitudes and Attitudes and Cruising Outpost party’s thanking cruisers for their loyalty and patronage. Several dozen active live-aboard cruisers attended, plus several hundred ‘leaving soon’ cruisers buying very cool marine equipment and toys at the show. As usual the Cruising Outpost booth was mobbed with show visitors wanting the famous pirate gear (arrggghhh!) and to say hello to Bob Bitchin. Sponsors supplied free beer and pizza that kept the party crowd warm on a typical cool Miami winter night. The cruisers’ favorite, Eric Stone Band entertained the mob with cruising tunes, trop-rock originals, and rock and roll. The charity raffle raised money for a new tall-ship being built in California as a youth training vessel.
