We've departed Port Said and are bound for Greece. Due to some reports of bad weather, we may stop at the Island of Creete to wait out the storm. At this time we have light winds off our port bow of about 10 knots, however yesterday and last night we had 20 knots on the bow. The barometer is beginning to fall.
