The Orphan Corsairs by Xaak Doyle
The lure of the sea has called to many a man and woman, and in these trying times of wooden ships and canvas sails, many have never returned. What 's beyond the horizon is unknown, but sometimes the safety of having two feet planted firmly on land just doesn't provide the comfort it is supposed to.

Three young men, just boys to be truthful, gather up their mates and go on account with a cagey sea captain and his first mate, dreaming the sea would be more welcoming than the orphanage that they were placed in. Guilty of no crime, just without family by circumstance, the boys feel the bonds of prison weighing heavily upon their souls.

Whether it is their imagination, or the hard evidence, they scurry onto the ship, cast off and heave to on the lines to set the sheets. With the wind at their back, their future is somewhere just beyond the bow, but then, there are even more things that they will need to tend to as the adventure of a lifetime has just gotten underway.
