“Three days into the passage, passing close to land, S/Y Hideaway’s mate spotted two boats on the horizon approaching just after dawn. Having alerted the security team member on watch, Hideaway’s anti-piracy plan was put into action. Broadcasting on VHF channel 16 and using the LRAD, the captain warned the approaching skiffs to stay back. Having seemingly decided the S/Y Hideaway was not the soft target they first appeared to be, the boats broke away, not to be seen again.”
