Further comments welcome.




Question asked was:




I would be very grateful for any advice you can give for our planned delivery of our Elan 410 from Malta to Gibraltar later this month.

Our concern is the direct course is close to Algeria.

We have read stories of yachts being aggressively boarded by Algerian authorities whilst sailing in these waters and of a couple being virtually imprisoned after being towed into an Algerian report in an emergency.

These reports are a few years old and we are wondering if they are still representative of the political dangers.

Are we better taking a longer course far away from Algerian waters?
