Just curious, after leaving the Red Sea, before you get to Seychelles
, isn't that Gulf of Aden & Somalia's "territorial waters"? What news has there been of any "unfriendly (aka pirate) activity" in recent months? I'd feel queasy - unless there has been enough friendly patrols to suppress what made that not so safe in the past.
I'm not a candidate, as I'd not have that long a stretch of time available, I'm just curious to ask. And I'm not meaning to rain on any parade, but I thought this had been a "no go zone" for a while. For me, I'm more interested in sailing in the Med, the North side at that, esp the Greece
Islands. So well wishes for your adventure, hopefully, my concern will turn out to be unfounded.
