Report A Passage from the Seychelles to Kenya by Maurice Wainwright — last modified Apr 08, 2018 10:41 PM
Here are some notes on a passage I made from the Seychelles to Kilifi, Kenya, in August 2017 and some notes about Kilifi itself and Lamu. Kilifi and the East African coast is a hidden gem. The flavour of the month seems to be Madagascar, but now having sailed much of the coast between Lamu and Dar es Salaam, including Zanzibar, there is much to be said about this part of the world. Piracy seems to be a deterrent, but as you well know, with the exception of a couple of odd incidents off the northern Somalia coast, no ships have been taken in the region since 2012.
