Maritime security company Neptune are sponsoring Jacob Bliksted Sørensen and his efforts to raise awareness of piracy in East Africa and its root causes by kite surfing a minimum of 1,000 kilometres between Mozambique and Tanzania with the journey coming to an end in Mombasa, Kenya.
As of Day 23 (August 24), Jacob was within sight of Mombasa and took a well-deserved rest.
Despite monsoon conditions in the region, Jacob and his team made positive progress.
Although the frequency of piracy attacks is more intense in the straits of Singapore, the severity is at its worst in the Malacca Strait.
Nobody was killed or injured in the attack, but it again marks the importance of raising awareness of the health and safety risks surrounding piracy at sea.
