El Gouna, Egypt, 18/12-2011
Sailing distance made: 6610 nautical miles
Now we are in the Red sea!!! :)
Last time I was writing, we were in Ismailia, in the middle of the Suez Canal, and from there we continued our trip through the canal further south to Suez...
In the Gulf of Suez we can turn off the engine and set sails. It is a magic feeling to be back in deep water again! :)
Typical for the northern part of the Red sea are the northerly winds, which are good for us who want to sail south... Good winds and a good speed makes the sailing to a real pleasure!
Some days later we arrive in El Gouna. Here is a lot of paper work to do and permits are waiting for us to be done, before we can start diving here in the Red sea...
After days with lots of paper work, we are finally ready to get under water...
... happy to have the permits done, we go for a nice snorceling dive at the reef close by... and it is so LOVELY to feel like being a part of the under water world again!!! :) :) :)
Now there is a nice time waiting ahead, filled with diving and filming... So it is time to get the diving gear ready and go diving! I can hardly wait... ;)
