We are planning a cruise from the Red Sea (Abu Tig Marina) to Cochin (India) and on to Thailand.

We will leave Abu Tig in April and go via Suakin (Sudan) Massawa (Eritrea) Aden (Yemen) and Salalah (Oman), crossing the Indian Ocean in September then on to Phuket (Thailand) in October via Galle (Sri Lanka)and the Andeman Islands.

At present we are two (45ft and 48ft sloops).

We would be pleased to enlarge the group.

Kind Regards

Bill & Pixi Bowen

Welcome Bill and Pixi,

Check out our WIKI (top of the page) >>> contents >>>> Ocean Passages >>> S.E Asia to Red Sea . suggest read in reverse, also suggest leaving Galle out of the plan - if you need fuel after leaving Cochin divert to Uligamu , Northern Maldives. Give Sri Lanka a wide berth to avoid "aggressive begging fishermen" Remember to apply early to India for your visas to India and the Andamans ( I am not sure as to the length of time they provide if you are to visit both - The Andamans is limited to 30 days)

Regards

Richard
