Windchime was leading the fleet across the straight when one of the skippers spotted a Pirate ship on the horizon. Darry immediately went below and put on his red shirt then led the fleet to victory. While out sailing the next day the fleet ran into 2 Pirate ships. Darry immediately put his red shirt on and vanquished both Pirate ships. On returning to the marina the skippers asked Darry about the red shirt. Darry explained that as leader he did not want the fleet to despair if he were injured and the red shirt would hide the blood. The skippers were impressed with the bravery of their leader. The next day the call came that 10 pirate ships had been sighted! Immediately all eyes turned to their leader who shortly appeared on deck wearing his brown pants.
