While sailing, an unknown number of pirates on board four skiffs chased after the ship and attempted to board, but failed.
The Master raised the distress alert via VHF Channel 16 and warned all ships in the vicinity.
He then triggered the horn to chase away the suspicious craft, increased the speed of the ship and informed the UKMTO, alerted the Indian Coast Guard (ICG) and continued the voyage.
