In a world where hotter is usually considered better, the yachting set head to warmer climes throughout the winter months.
Typically, those popular winter charter destinations include countries in the Middle East like Bahrain, Oman, Dubai or Abu Dhabi for a famous F1 Race, but also destinations within Indian Ocean regions, including Madagascar, Mauritius, Seychelles and the Maldives.
Even the presence of a Naval Forces in the Indian Ocean, the threat posed by the Somali pirates has been virtually eliminated, because of the war in Yemen, the situation around Iranian coast, the activities of the Al-Shabaab terrorist group in East Africa and its attacks on tourist resorts have engendered a profound sense of uncertainty in this part of the world that has cast its shadow over neighbouring cruising destinations such as Northern Madagascar, the Seychelles and even Mozambique, and it must be stressed that sailing in that area is still potentially dangerous.
Even Madagascar was expected to become the major attraction in the South Indian Ocean, but the ever lingering threat of piracy has put paid to those hopes.
