We had four relaxing days anchored in the submarine pen bay in Otok Lastovo. Activities ashore included renting a quad bike for a nice drive to Lastovo town and back. Checkout was painless with no fees and no requirement to moor at the customs dock. All officials are on duty in Ubli from 0800 to 2000. The harbormaster's office is next to the ferry office, police is next to customs across the harbor at the clearance wharf. We completed paperwork at 1900 and left the next morning at 0600. This may have been stretching the rules as the customs officer would have preferred to be able to see the yacht even if only at anchor (Interlude was hidden around a point).
We are now on passage to Malta where we have a reservation at the Grand Harbour Marina. Our position at 0630 UTC is 42d29.3'N, 16d58.7'E A NW wind is starting to fill in and is forecast to give a nice ride to the heel of Italy.
