Among the men-of-war rendezvousing at Saint-Augustine's Bay in 1689 were the Bachelor's Delight and the Cygnet, the same pirate warships defeated by the Peruvians off Panama four years earlier.

1691
The French and British East India Companies both had tried to settle Madagascar, but the colonists sent to the island made enemies of the Malagasy, who drove them into the sea. After two centuries, no European had succeeded in establishing a permanent camp anywhere along Madagascar's long coastlines. Saint Mary's Island became the main resort for pirates when Adam Baldridge built his trading psot early in 1691. Some pirate craft already had used the harbor at Saint Mary's. But the presence of Baldridge's fort and the availability of European supplies settled the issue.
