Yesterday we met our yacht agent, smiley Mohamid, who took
us into town to renew our visas for Oman.
It took us several hours and included a visit to an
inspector at the police station – but they still let us renew !
Can you believe it has been a whole month since we visited
The shipping date we have been given is currently 7-8th
May, when the ship will arrive in Salalah and then it will be a day at least to
load the yachts.
It will have to be a finely tuned operation as there are
currently 11 yachts here with only one crew member on board since a lot of crew
have gone home and don’t plan to return to help with loading.
Of course there are a few yachts with young families who couldn’t
stay here – it is no place for children. It has been difficult for them,
their families have been torn apart whilst we sit and wait for the yachts to be
transported to the Med.
Only two weeks to go !
