Well "Operation Divine Wind" continues to break wind, checking on whose where on AIS we have:


SSCS:
  • DVV2 Brigitte Bardot (ZA) still berthed in Rous Head Harbour, Fremantle, Western Australia.
  • MS Bob Barker (NL) still berthed in Hobart, Tasmania.
  • MS Steve Irwin (NL) berthed in Port Albany, Western Australia.  She went around the south west corner of Australia and into a nice little harbor at the end of State Route 30/Albany Highway.
Albany has a very interesting history well worth reading up on. It was the first Port of Western Australia used by the original settlers also the final departure Port for the Australian Armed Forces in World War 1.


Good Watch

As piracy increases there are over 300 seafarers held captive by pirates off the coast of Somalia without any attempts being made to rescue.

HOWEVER THE PRIVATE YACHTS OF THE VOLVO RACE OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS YACHTSMEN CAN GET A SPECIAL SHIP WITH AN ARMED GUARD DETACHMENT TO FERRY THEIR YACHTS FROM SOUTH AFRICA TO THE ARABIAN SEA BECAUSE OF THE PIRACY RISK.  ONCE THERE THEY WILL RACE TO DUBAI.
