Piel Island

I was doing a job on a friends boat in Fleetwood t'other day. And I noticed a sign that invited yachts to go to a gathering to witness the crowning of the King of Piel. Now as the King of Piel is the landlord of the pub on Piel I wondered if the pub has re-opened. Does anyone know owt about this.

Never been superstious never worried about anything like that at all and I suppose I think superstition a bit silly, except when it comes to boats, I was lucky I liked the name of my boat when I bought it and glad I didn't have to think about changing it. However if it had been called Lady Penelope ...
