Captain Peter Stapleton was chatting with his chief officer on the bridge of the 18,000 tonne cargo ship Boularibank when the green light on the radar caught their attention…

What followed was a successful; defence against a pirate attacks on the Boularibank.

BBC Radio 4 is featuring Captain Stapleton in its “Taking A Stand” series, which is available online here. Interesting and instructive.
