Re: Danish Navy Rocks Pirates !

The good news stories are starting to out way the bad. Let's hope that the increased activity against the pirates has some effect. It has been sad to see a number of friends cruising plans terminated because of the Somali situation.

Ahoy Garry, that is right! I hate to see violence, but the navies have been not taking decisive action and now that they are the results are very positive.
several cruisers I know have sold their yachts here in thailand , rather than run the gauntlet and sail across the horn of africa back to the USA or europe.

I don't hate to see violence whenever it's a pirate.
It's just Justice being Done.

It's the world growing a pair.

Re: Danish Navy Rocks Pirates !

G,day Kieth,

There has been another discussion on the forum today regarding the "perceived" threat and it has been interesting to hear others perception of the problem from the comfort of their home waters and armchairs.
We are currently comfortable at Marina Island at Pulau Pangkor doing a mini refit. As soon as the weather looks better up your way we will head up to Thailand and maybe catch up for a beer. There isn't any surf here so it means that we are working hard on the boat jobs.

Cheers
Garry and Wendy
