Day 1: After provisioning the boat and safety briefing we sail from Manoel Island Marina Malta and head towards Marzamemi in Sicily which is about 47 nm to the NNE of Malta. If the wind is calm we can start up the engine and would take us 7hrs of motoring to arrive at the beautiful port of Marzamemi. Time to swim before berthing. Berthing fees are approx €60-€80/night depending on the season. In the evening we can visit the multitude of restaurants that litter the main streets in Marzamemi and having a coffee after a good meal at the local piazza is a must with a visit at the local drinking hole.
Day 2: After having good breakfast with fruit, muesli and other cereals fresh brewed coffee and teas we head towards Syracuse stopping for a swim at Fonta Bianca nature reserve to swim and sunbath the parts that stood in the dark for such a long time.
