I haven't been in that part of the world, but I haven't seen or heard anything that indicates any changes in the piracy
When it is extremely stormy, the small open skiffs cannot range as far offshore
, giving a small seasonal dip in number of ships captured, but a trip up the Red Sea still takes you right down their alley.
There are some political changes occuring in Yemen, it's too early to see if it will be better, or worse. But either way you still have to go through pirate infested waters to get to Yemen.
In my opinion, now is not the time.
Never roll the dice when the odds are against you.
