Laura, as you continue on your way west towards the Christmas and Cocos Keeling Islands you may well experience a similar encounter as mentioned above relating to Zac Sunderland.
Chances are they will be assylum seekers and not pirates and as such, of course they will not show up on your radar nor answer your calls on the radio nor fly their national flag. Of course they will do their best to stay hidden.
I'm not saying you should throw caution to the wind but don't be paralysed by other people's suggestions of fear and paranoia.
Wishing you all the best and looking forward to following you all the way home. Take care and have the time of your life together with your beloved "Guppy".

Laura,

When I was 17, I traveled for two years in what turned out to be a serendipitious around-the-world journey. I visited many countries and many people during my extended trip. Fourteen months of that trip was on a 56' ketch.
My disappointment in those that are rushing around-the-world to set records is this: There is a wonderful world with many friendly people, incredibly georgeous places and awe-inspiring things happening. Be sure and stop along the way, smell the roses, and share some days with the people of the world. It will make the memories that carry you through life, and be the adventure of a lifetime.
