According to local correspondents, the Port of Aden is now closed and the situation locally is increasingly volatile.
 
We are told that the ports of Hodeidah and Saleef are operating, however, members considering trading to the region should exercise extreme caution.
 
The club strongly recommends that members liaise closely with local agents and port and flag state authorities before calling at Yemeni ports. We suggest that members also notify their hull and machinery underwriters and war risks providers. 
 
Members should comply with the most recent version of Best Management Practices when transitting the region's waters.
