Andanada in Spanish, Bordée in French. A custom to celebrate a feat. In practice, a “Toast”. The Captain orders a Broadside to be fired or delegates a Brother to let fly a Broadside, to toast an individual, another Brotherhood, an action or a feat. The ritual is usually performed in Spanish and ends with a chorus of ORZA.
The Spanish Original:
Tripulación cargar baterías…Cañones de proa, apunten……….
