Re: Safety between Suez and India

I agree with many about the choice of boat. Hunter 27 is nice for day sail coastal hopping and picnics, but not an ocean boat.
For small ocean pocket boats think long encapsulated keel with good ballast ration.
Think Contessa 26 or better still, 32. Think Halcyon 27. Nice compact cabins. Secure in a blow.
Short handed sailing is not really down to the size of the boat. It’s about the ease of handling. Ellen MacArthur had a huge trimaran and was single handed, so look at line management, number and size of winches and deck organisation.
No idea about Red Sea - sorry!
Fair winds...

Re: Safety between Suez and India

“The incredible voyage” by Tristan Jones covers the OP’s questions rather well, it’s a bit dated regarding shoreside conditions but still worth reading to get a feel for the weather.
