Question by Atlas: Escorting past Somalian waters.?
I’m planning a circumnavigational trip around the world and after heading west from SE Asia I am left with a choice of going around Cape Hope OR going through the Red Sea and popping out into the Mediterranean.Honestly, I would enjoy going through to the Mediterranean since there are many places that I would like to visit(Dubai,Cairo,Athens, etc etc) but as we all know Somalian waters are infested with pirates and the last thing I want to do is get my neck slit from pirates. Is there any possibility to get escorted through those waters by jumping in a fleet that is already heading there? I thought about bringing a gun,butafter researching the restrictions of having a weapon and the obvious fact of being massively out gunned makes bringing a firearm a huge hassle and a waste of time. Any suggestions?
All right, yea I thought so. Its better to be safe than sorry. Wtih weapons in mind, does a bow and arrow count. Its not for defense , but for fishing. Would i get in trouble for have a bow and some arrows?

The odds of being able to join any fleet heading there is pretty small.
Additionally, I’m assuming you’re on a sailboat, I don’t think you’d be able to keep up with any armed fleet.
Even if you were able to join an armed fleet it would be pointless due to the speed limitations with a sailboat..
