From Noonsite –
Honduras – Single Handed Cruiser Loses Boat to Pirates
Grenada– MAYAG to hold meeting with cruisers to discuss security concerns – a positive step
Venezuela – Armed Boarding & Robbery
Martinique – Yacht Stolen
Seems like we are hearing more of these events, and the topic of security is appearing more in some of the on-line forums.
Being aware of the problems in areas you may visit is a step in preventing them from happening to you.
Looking forward, we will be posting some information on some select Yacht Security companies, to provide you resources to prepare you for your cruising. The techniques and equipment we will discuss are designed to provide more than just a security function – they may help you enjoy your cruise more, too.
