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.
Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
