From the Navigator
Early this morning we will transit through Bab el Mendeb. Bab el Mendeb is the narrow entrance into the Red Sea separating the coast of Djibouti then Eritrea on our port side and Yemen on our starboard side. Once clear of the entrance we will set north north westerly course up the Red Sea for the remainder of the day.
