Location: Port Ghalib, Egypt

We had another day in Port Ghalib, taking advantage of internet access and showers, with ample time to catch up on school work. We had Student Leadership presentations and an Oceanography class in the morning and a Marine Biology class in the afternoon. In between classes, we fixed the martingale net, polished belaying pins, and baked a cake for Anna’s birthday. Right before dinner, we finally received the freshwater pumps that we had been waiting for and are now installing them in the engine room; we’re all set to leave for our 300 nautical mile passage to Port Suez tomorrow morning.
