Default Month of July Piracy Free...Amazing

Whatever the reason, piracy seems to have come to a complete halt. It will be interesting to see how it continues.

But I agree, the US Navy build-up near Iran surely has something to do with it.

Maybe it's a lack of oportunity. Publicity about piracy in the middle east, off the African Coast, the Southern Philippines and the Malacca Straits might be having an effect on the Sailing Community. Increased penalties in the more developed nations may also be having an effect.

Either way, it's good news. Now, if we can only deter the midnight spares, mooring creepers.......

Piracy has really big impact in the sailing community. Many are afraid to sail in to region that piracy has high percentage. This news will somehow ease the feeling of many sailors.
