Polly the parrot flies north to the land of snow and ice as the Pirates meet up for their next Piralympic Games.

On Snowy Island our old favourite's the vuvuzela playing Zulus; kilted bagpipe-playing Scots; cowboy guitar playing Americans; tattooed Maoris; yellow turbaned Indians and Abba Singing Viking pirates, are joined by the GIRLS, the Greek Goddesses and the Japanese Ninjas.
With their new prosthetic arms, racing wheelchairs and blades the pirate crews take part in the Inuit (Eskimo) Paralympics. Run by the Inuit's, Bernard the polar bear, Wally the whale and their friends.
The Pirates go fishing for the whole village, build innovative igloos and take part in a sled race that nearly ends in disaster.
One Pirate becomes stranded on the ice because she didn't listen to the Inut who told her it was melting, she then had to be rescued. Others interact with the Inuit children in a game of snowballs, whilst the 'real' Inuit Games run in the background. These are based on everyday activities that the Inuit perform (hauling out their catch from a waterhole), Keeping fit during the winter months, agility and strength - one leg high kick, arm pull, sled race (testing endurance) etc.
