Sailing back home
Sri-Lanka, India, Socotra, Read Sea and the Mediterranean by Johan Kjellander 2020
In December 2019 we left Malaysia and sailed to Sri-Lanka. We arrived to the port of Galle on the 24:th of December after 9 days at sea and 1220 NM. We had very light winds many days and had to use almost 200L of diesel for motorsailing.
On the 8:th of January we left Sri-lanka for Cochin in India, 350 NM, where we arrived 3 days later. We spent 3 weeks in India and left for Socotra in Jemen by the end of January where we arrived on the 9:th of February after 1400 NM. One week later we continued to Djibouti, another 700 NM, and then up through the Red Sea in the beginning of March.
In Egypt we were stopped by the Corona Pandemi. We hoped that ports would soon open again but after a month in Port Ghalib we realized that this was going to take time. So, we changed our plans and decided to go directly back home to Aland where we knew we would be welcome.
