 Again it’s been a while since I updated you on my travels. We made our way through the Gulf of Aden, an area which has had a lot of press coverage recently due to the piracy and drug smuggling activities, and then on through the entrance to the Gulf; the Straits of Hormuz.  This is a narrow channel with Iran on one side and United Arab emirates on the other, and so transit through is a time of heightened security for the ship. Finally after 12 days at sea we reached Bahrain for a well deserved visit along with the chance to embark a significant amount of stores for the ship.
