Spalax 2 Global Circumnavigation in 2022

Leg 11 – Djibouti to Port Sudan, Sudan

  • Departure date: March 18
  • Distance: 580 nm
  • Duration: 5 days
  • Heading: 325 degrees

This leg up the Red Sea will be a breeze, a leisurely downwind run to Port Sudan. Spalax 2 will bank off the vestiges of the north-east monsoon, as it squeezes through the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait into the Red Sea.
