Re: At Last! Definitive Self Defense for Sailors
Don't bring facts into the discussion, it would spoil all the fun for the would-be Rambos. When you are actually out cruising there are lots of things to worry about, pirates are so far down the list as to be non-existent. A prediction, piracy is so much in decline in the Western Indian Ocean that circumnavigations will routinely be going the Red Sea route within three years, although having gone the Cape route if someone asked I would suggest coming this way.
Finished the circumnavigation in early February in Grenada. Have to work on a book project for the next several months so the boat will be waiting for next year.
