To whom it may concern,

The attack occurred on the night of 6th September while sailing from Puerto La Cruz to Trinidad. Three of us were sailing in a Hunter Legend 45 and 5 men came aboard, two were armed.

The attack lasted over an hour while they made sure that they got everything we had, even our food.

One shot was fired, but no one was killed.

This is a brief outline of the facts.
