WEmade our first landfall in 4 days last nigt at 21:15 as we motored in to Msida Creek Marina at Valetta. We nosed our way through some of the 700berths to find a vacant berth as there was no marina staff on duty. The whole area ashore was dominated by the huge ancient walls and forts of Valetta. There was a slight drama about 7NM offshore as we ran out of diesel and the engine cut out. As usual the skip had only reluctantly fired up the engine in the past 2 hours. Total run from Kos was 729NM!
