Val...I subscribed to L&A for years and always hated this page because the very same places that EVERYONE knows about show up every month and cruising yachts are NEVER involved. I mean...you have to be deaf dumb and blind not to know to avoid the Somali coast and the Gulf of Aden and the Mallacca straits.
The real problem is that the REAL crime ridden spots for cruising boats NEVER are reported on. The whole purpose of this column should be to inform cruisers where it is dangerous to go and it is less than helpful in that regard.
I repeat that for anyone interested in up to date danger info for cruisers, from cruisers...go to the piracy reports on noonsite.com
CD...I appreciate the response and I know you will work to get it right.
