From Egypt to Seychelles in a catamaran

Hi there!
Next march we will take our 54' catamaran all across the Suez channel and the Red Sea from Egypt until Seychelles.
We are concerned about the piracy in the area despite during last year there were no piracy reports... but the area is still under high risk of them.

We are considering all the options : going in convoy or solo, hiring private security with weapons... hiring an experienced skipper in the area from Djibuti or so until Seychelles...

We would love to read your thoughts about this, specially about the ones who have real and good information about it because you have made this trip before or know someone ( first hand) who have done it.

Thank you so much!!

Amparo

Friends of ours are travelling that way at the end of next year, it may be worth getting in touch with them for further information.

Re: From Egypt to Seychelles in a catamaran

I am also interested in this passage, I was once on the Seychelles and it would be wonderful to combine that with the Mediterranean. Please share your experience once you got through.
