The capture of the Slaver 'Boladora', 6 June 1829

On the morning of 5 June 1829 while cruising off the North West coast of Cuba HM Schooner 'Pickle' discovered a strange sail. This she stalked until she had interposed herself between the stranger and land. She closed in on her after nightfall. Action then commenced and after 80 minutes the slaver, as she so proved, surrendered. She was the topsail schooner 'Boladora' with a crew of 60 of which 10 were killed. The 'Pickle' had only half that number in her crew of which one was killed outright and three died later. The prize was taken to Havana with some difficulty as she had to be jury rigged and the prisoners were in the majority. They and the slaves were delivered to the Spanish Governor.
