Another Sailing Yacht Missing and Feared Abducted off the Seychelles

From Noonsite Noonsite: Another Sailing Yacht Missing and Feared Abducted off the Seychelles

Officially not yet fully confirmed reports speak of another case in which a sailing yacht with possibly 2 British couples on board was captured by sea-shifta off the Seychelles within the last 24h.
While official records show the report of a missing yacht, local reports say the yacht is being commandeered towards Somalia, possibly Hardheere and even more likely Hobyo.
More information when we have it.
The message is the journey, we are sure the answer lies in the destination. But in reality, there is no station, no place to arrive at once and for all. The joy of life is the trip, and the station is a dream that constantly out distances us”. Robert Hastings, The Station
