This guy is a wise man! He has been there and done it! If he takes best advice from uk/us gov agencies he survives, gets to go home safe and go sailing again? These pirate chap's do not have a high regard for their own lives never mind a yacht crew taking pot shots at them. Ok some of you might have had a gun pointed at you before.Has your wife and possibly your kids
? I hope not. Where do you draw the line if you are armed yourself? do you shoot first and kill anyone who turns up alongside your boat? Even when they are just beggars? etc. Then you become a pirate yourself! Did you ever fancy loosing your head
in some dusty market square out in that part of the world? Its a tragic fact of life that an oil
tanker or container ship has to keep us in the West supplied with goods. and that the Suez canal is the shortest route
to take. keep out of the way! stay safe and sail another route
. even piggy back like this guy.
ok you guys Feed on that lot!
