Most of the primary predators in Africa have as their favourite food source a herd of whatever they're hunting. Why?
Well, the herd has only one thing on their mind when the predator attacks - flight. Leaving the animal under attack to take the heat while they get the flock out of there.
Thirty yachts in a flotilla, a pirate vessel decides which one he wants (same as the lion does) and then attacks it, bristling with rocket launchers, grenades and automatic weapons. How many yachts in the flotilla are going to come to their rescue?
If you believe any of them will, then go flotilla sailing. Me?
I'd go to the Cape while the rest of the flotilla (like the animals in the herd) shout warnings at each other over their VHF's and head as fast as possible in the opposite direction.
OK I am a born skeptic. Sorry.
