Perhaps the most challenging stretch of the circumnavigation. The trick is to give the Horn of Africa a seriously wide berth to avoid any Somalian entanglements of the Jack Sparrow kind and hug the Yemeni coast before entering the Gulf of Anden and making a mad dash for the safety of the former French colony of Djibouti.
