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.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
