In the Gulf of Aden between Somalia and Yemen we were on pirate watch the whole time, we took turns with binocullars, but between sunset and dark is when the pirates attack, so we would both be at Stand To each scanning the horizon and the convoy for pirates.

As you can see none of the boats in the convoy were close as they had already spread out into their night time configuration, right in the most dangerous time!
After 5 days of this we had black rings around our eyes from the binoculars.

Here's a video compilation of sunsets and sunrises that I put together from the members of sailboatowners. Great version of Sleepwalk by Hapa to accompany it.

Just curious...what was the plan of action if you DID get attacked?
