Letter from the Editor
october!? Where did the time go? since the launch of BluE five
months ago, we have reported on plenty of action in the red sea.
In fact, 2009 seems to have marked a year of diving firsts for many
in Egypt’s waters.
It was a logbook success for me, certainly, with my first
hammerhead (finally), whale shark and sailfish encounters. And it
has been equally exciting on the surface seeing the launch of BluE
magazine, which is in print for the first time for dive 2009 show
visitors.
A highly unusual diving-related-first also happened to me a few
weeks ago at september’s Project AWArE International clean-up
day. An impromptu applause and cheers from a crowd of beach-
