Anti-piracy routing outside Gulf of Aden (Updated 22 September 2009)
Mariners either planning or who are currently undertaking voyages through waters off the coast of Somalia are advised that the seasonal beneficial effects offered by the south-west monsoon season are now diminishing. As a result, EUNAVFOR’s Maritime Security Centre Horn of Africa, (MSCHOA) is standing down its information weather bulletin, dated 2nd July 2009 regarding weather routing during the SW monsoon.
Therefore, ships transiting south and east of the coast of Somalia to ports outside of east Africa, should consider navigating to the east of Madagascar, east of 60 east and south of 10 south.
All attacks including sightings of suspicious crafts / mother ships should be reported to the 24 hour manned IMB Piracy Reporting Centre.
