We’re delighted to read co-founder Geordie’s perspective on yachting in Socotra by Sam Fortescue in Boat International’s feature, ‘Yachting in the World’s Most Dangerous Destinations’ as he picks out dangerous travel zones that have evolved into tantalizing destinations for the adventurous superyacht expedition.
Although part of Yemen, “Socotra has not seen conflict on its shores [and] the level of marine traffic passing makes it a perfect potential yachting destination, one that we are really excited about. The area is much more stable now. We work with partners such as Veritas to ensure we have the correct level of information and security at all times.” Geordie Mackay-Lewis
Socotra is an island off the notorious Horn of Africa that “offers the tenacious traveler astonishing flora and fauna found nowhere else on earth” which is safe and well worth the journey.
