A British explorer is heading to a deserted Pacific “treasure island” where nineteenth century pirates are said to have stashed a multi million pound hoard of gold, silver and jewellery stolen from the Spanish.

Did Pirates actually sail around Cape Horn just to stash a bit of Treasure somewhere in the Pacific,I always thought that Pirates hung out in the Carribean waiting for the Spanish ships to go past on their way home from South American ports. I think this guy should check out his facts before wasting his time..
