Danger of piracy in the Gulf of Aden and surrounding waters remains very high.
The international naval authorities have issued an invitation through ISAF (the International Sailing Federation) to yachtsmen with recent experience of the area, or who are considering passage, to a meeting on Tuesday 19 October 2010 at 1400 at the Northwood, London HQ of MSCHOA (Maritime Security Centre, Horn of Africa).
A limited number of places are available to yachting journalists.
ISAF guidelines and those of the UKFCO continue to strongly advise yachts to avoid the area.
For invitations to attend the London meeting please contact ISAF at e-mail: email@example.com.
