JJ Waller’s Pirate weekend

Photographer JJ Waller had an action-packed weekend – starting off taking photographs of the low-tide tour of the Amsterdam at Bulverhythe, documenting Pirate Weekend and he even copped a cheeky trip out to Camber Sands. This is what he says – and more importantly – what he saw!

“Here is a selection of my pictures from Saturday and Sunday which included side trips to Camber Sands the wreck of the Amsterdam. The Old Time Sailors on the pier on Sunday were a world class quality sound – amazing. Highest Octane available, just class.”

Scroll down to see JJ’s pick of his pics.
