East Channel

We anchored last evening off Doha, Qatar.  We're now underway into Mesaieed's inner anchorage where we'll be anchored overnight before shifting to the berth.  We take the East Channel inbound which is for deep draft vessels and requires a pilot.  Upon departure we'll take the West Channel and pilot the vessel ourselves. 


I came up to the bridge to see the sun getting lower on the horizon making the water a rich gold just as we passed buoy E-05.
