Worldwide Maritime Crime and Piracy Summary, Week of 8-14 December, plus Volvo Ocean Race update…

First, an update from the Volvo Ocean Race which continues to battle it’s way across the Agulhas Current and through frontal boundaries…

It was a light week with nothing reported in the Indian Ocean, except for some wayward pirates who appear to be lost at sea.

INDONESIA: Tanker boarded 10 December at 0340 LT while anchored in position  01:42N – 101:29E, approximately 2 nm northeast of Dumai.  Three robbers boarded, entered the engine room, took a motorman hostage and stole engine spares before escaping.  (IMB)
