Does anyone else have a DD or DS at sea right now in the vicinity of the Suez Canal? I am wondering if anyone has heard what the conditions are like there. Are some shipping companies changing routes to avoid it? My DS is due in that area soon, and I am concerned about safety. It seems a merchant ship would very vulnerable during the slow passage through the canal. I have read that they might shut down the canal entirely. Just when I was getting used to sea year, I now have something else to worry about. If anyone has any recent information from your DD or DS, please pass it along.
