Carina and Aron on the Red Sea - Radio-News
The Abu Ali story
After Aron left Hurgada, dropped his anchor in a bay, Mersa Zeitiya.
(2009.06.9. 27-49N 033-34E http://meder.hu/RedN_Arut.jpg)
Next day, as he left the place, the strong wind forced him to return.
Since then, two other yachts (Silver Hill and Esperanza) are waiting there.
They have also tried a few times to left the place, but were force to return.
A friend of Aron’s uncle has got relatives in Port Said.
They (Mohamed H. and his wife) heard about Aron, and contacted me.
They wanted to give some help to Aron.
Mahmud, Mohamed’s cousin is working on the ship Abu Ali,
which serves the oil wells nearby.
Mohamed arranged to get the ship a permit to go to Carina
to give some supplies (mainly food).
So, now he has got food enough, no rush, he can calmly wait for the better wind...
Many thanks Mohamed, Mahmud, Abu Ali’s captain, and the radio-amateurs,
who helped to communicate all the above
Else: I’ve got today the last translation of Aron’s logbook,
so you can follow the his trip: http://meder.hu/eng/newlogbook.htm
