Yesterday was an act of piracy, when a seagull used the moment of distraction while I looked at the sailboat, and got my lunch.
Today, I realized that there are two actual pirate ships in the vicinity, so maybe they were just a decoy for a seagull. Maybe they are working together? A speedboat tried to get close to one of these ships and got greeted with a cannon fire. I'm glad I shot them from a safety of the shore. :)
