Wow, you're planning to go via Yemen? You know there is a civil war there with some ports changing hands, right?

Re: Crossing North Indian Ocean

Do the pirates read Cruisers Forum so that they can easily find the boats to attack?

Re: Crossing North Indian Ocean

I am interested in crewing for you adventure. I have considerable experience - ASA instructor up to 108 and Coast Guard Captain's license - 50 ton Master. I have about 25,000 offshore miles experience. I have sailed many of the seas - but not the Indian ocean. I am 74 - fit and active - ride a bicycle 5 miles daily. Retired cardiologist.
