Captain Ransom King Mayhem

Originally for St Augustine Florida, Captain Ransom King Mayhem started pirating as the mascot for his kids’ elementary school. He left that when they grew up, but then got back into it in 2008 at the 1st Pirate Gathering in St Augustine. Back in Panama City Beach he figured he could use the gift of pirate for the greater good, starting with the school for the Special Needs community. This is how he started his krewe, Pirates of the White Sand (named for the sand on his local beach, called “sugar sand” for its white appearance).

Captain Ransom has been proud to see his krewe grow and continue to help more and more people, from Night to Shine, to helping with Hurricane Relief for Hurricane Michael which was a category 5 hurricane, to also being asked to help the tourist development company with all their major events for the locals and tourists. He’s proud to be known as “The Pirate of Panama City Beach.”

We are put here on this earth to help, not to take, and to be there in any way for everyone.
