Paul and Rachel Chandler where sailing the their yacht Lynn Rival when having successfully sailed from Europe out to India had left the Seychelles on route Tanzania when they where seized by Somalian pirates. After over a year later and on payment of a ransom they were freed from their Solalian captors to return to the UK and write this book.
Check out their blog hosted by mailasail which chronicles their voyage out to India and then onto the Seychelles within whose waters they were taken. They where incredibly fortunate to have had the adrift Lynn Rival picked up a couple of days later following their abduction and delivered back to the UK by the Royal Navy. Their blog now details the refit of Lynn Rival so they can go out and cruise once more.
