After a day of mostly motoring and a couple of hours windward sailing in lumpy seas we anchored in calm water in 12m over sand and coral patches. Very snug. One could certainly ride out a gale here, as long as it is from the North-East.

Woke up to NW winds of about 10 knots and a forecast for lighter winds all day until about midnight. It means motoring, but we will put 46 miles in the bank by going to Gez Wadi Gimal today while conditions allow. Missed out on snorkelling Dolphin Reef unfortunately.
