Sopers Marina, Tortola, British Virgin
Islands. The 'port' was established at some time before 1615
by the Dutch privateer Joost van Dyk (an official "pirate",
authorised to raid and plunder). The British Pirate Blackbeard (whose real name was
Edward Teach) made his home here at Soper's Hole between
1715 and 1718. Blackbeard conducted raids on other ships
from his base here using the Jolly Roger.
