the Med, the Med, the Med !!!

Good old BE, good old engine! After 85 miles we arrive in Port Said ready to clear out of Egypt ASAP. And of course we do it the BE way. Marina wants 20 US$ just to raft up for an hour, harbour wants 29 US$ just to escort us 500 meters up the harbour, agent wants fee for passports and last but not least immigration wants another 30 US$ to stamp passports. Bugger that, we say, kick pilot off the boat, hoist sails and steam out of the harbour full throttle into international waters. What a beautiful sight to be out in the open again and what an even more beautiful view to see Egypt disapear behind the horizont.
