Pirate Astronomy 1650 to 1725
Avast there you scurvy landlubbers, heave to, or we'll blast your tub to splinters!

The navigator along with the captain and quartermaster would usually ran the ship, and his skill would mean success (and riches) for the crew. We’ll be looking at astronomy in the Golden Age of Piracy.
