Event: Suspicious Approach

 

Southern Red Sea

 

It has been reported that a vessel transiting the Bab el Mandeb sighted seven skiffs. Two of the skiffs closed to within 200m of the vessel and then moved away. The vessel and crew are reported to be safe.

 

Vessels within a 100 nautical mile radius should increase their anti-piracy deterrents in line with Best Management Practices 4. This should include increased twenty four hour anti-piracy watch keeping and radar monitoring. Vessel hardening should be checked and where appropriate bolstered.
