I know about the Pirate threat, also there is a Civil War in Yemen at the moment.
There are people on here who are Crusing The Gulf of Aiden at the moment and say it is fine.
There hasn't been anything taken by the Pirates for a few years now, there is always a risk, Pirates, Storms, Sysrems failure etc..
I do not want to do the Atlantic, Pacific route to get there.
At the time of year I plan to do this the Pirate threat is at its lowest, according to the information I have read.
