This summer I plan to be pretty mobile in my boat. I am now retired and fancy Sailing around for the next couple of years. I am a quite competent sailor, however one of my biggest fears is of pirates holding sailors to ransom.Where are the main danger areas to avoid?

The obvious area to avoid is the high risk areas around the East coast of Africa. Somalia being probably the most well known. All sailing yachts would be at risk at being held to ransom by these pirates.
I am sure there are other areas to avoid but this is one I know about.
Hope you have a good and safe trip.
