Pelican Cayes Piracy

Just learned of the attack on the Cat anchored at Pelican Cayes, off Belize, on 3/23/12. It has been posted on Noonsite. If this has already been posted here I did not find it.

Re: Pelican Cayes Piracy

Here is more details on the attack from the captain of the pirated boat
Tourists on Chartered Sailboat Attacked and Robbed - The Belize Forums

This seem to be a targeted attack against unarmed tourists by most likely brutal non-Belizean criminals with no mercy. Anyone in the Bay of Honduras/Southern Belize or heading that way should be made aware. This is first incident of this kind and brutality in Belize and if left untreated will result in more. There was escalation of attacks against cruisers and boaters in Rio Ducle, Guatemala over the last few months, so these might be related. Spread the word.
