En Route, NE Sha’ab Rumi

A weak sea breeze out of the NNE has given us a break from the continuous motoring. We are sailing close-hauled in 7 to 10 knots, making 4.5 to 5 knots. It’s been a day of little to do other than keep an eye out. There’s hardly any traffic other than ships either anchored at Port Sudan or over the horizon in the ship channel to the east. We had a line out all day but caught nothing.
