New Chart On Piracy Gulf of Aden

We received a chart from the US Navy which we enhanced and anyone can see now for himself how significant the problem realy is.

Look for the details at Alondra's Website and click 'India' and then 'Follow us'.
It shows that 2005 showed 14 incidents, 2006 -13, 2007 - 8 and the first 4 months of 2008, mainly in April 23. Furthermore it seems that the area is shifting towards the north east, mainly of the coast of Yemen, east of Mukkalah.

Hope it is of any use for cruisers

Interesting article. Double click on the map and then put your cursor over a pirate attack. It gives details of the attack. Two of the attacks are on yachts.

The Chinese navy are now in the area. They play hardball, and won't let the pirates simply run away, unscathed.
