Dehalak Deset & Nokra Deset
The heat and hunidity of Massawa harbour were left behind this morning and we had a brisk sail to an anchorage between Dehalak Deset and Nokra Deset about 30 miles East of Massawa. 
The anchorage is in a former Soviet equipped naval base which was abandoned in a hurry and there are the wrecks of several ships, floating docks and cranes here.
Its still hot (38C) but the humidity is only 40% rather than the 60% we had in Massawa.  We can also swim again, which is slightly cooling - the water temperature is 32C.
