Maybe we'll see you in Durban - IF you can drag yourself away from Thailand and Chagos.

I really have my heart set on scuba diving for 2 months in the Red Sea and then the Med. I'll have a couple of Retired Navy Seals aboard for the diving and passage.

Trim,

Greetings from Grenada!

We did the Red / Med route a few years ago - delightful! Explore the marsas along the coast, they're all great for diving at the entrances. And the islands off Eritrea are pristine.

Please ask your SpecOps crew if they know my old shipmate - Jim Cook - who was on the teams back in the 80's & 90's and have them, have him contact me. Jim and I did a WestPac cruise on the Kitty Hawk together and would love to get back in touch with him.

Thanks.

All the best,

Kirk McGeorge
