Sea Day

Day 80

March 26, 2013

We are  on our way to the Seychelles, three sea days to be exact . We are due to arrive March 28th and I Have been organizing a snorkel tour here.  The waters from Colombo, Sri Lanka, the port we just left, and Seychelles is an area where the Somalian pirates have taken many container ships hostage.  While in our last port of call they lined the third deck, the promenade deck, with razor wire to discourage anyone rappelling up our ship, plus there are two security guards on each side scanning the horizon 24 hours a day.  We also went through a mock drill yesterday on what to do if we were being taken over.  I feel better knowing that our progress is being monitored by various naval ships in the area and we are going quite fast, 20 knots and we have the potential to bump it up to 27 knots if needed.

I am sorry I am so behind on my blog, I hope to catch up in the next couple of days.

Till tomorrow
