SY "Kamu II" at anchor, west of the ferry pier, at 9 m depth, on sand and coral.

Short-tacking into 30 knots of head wind, bang on the nose, along the edge of the Sinai reef, between 10 m and 100 m east off the fringing reef, thus avoiding the bigger ones of the infamous short and steep waves of the Gulf of Aqaba/Eilat and sinning against one of our own sailing rules: “If the wind is forward of the beam and twenty knots or more, forget it.”

“To reach a port we must set sail
Sail, not tie at anchor
Sail, not drift.”
(Franklin D. Roosevelt)
