A dual celebration for Jewel of Muscat as she enters Port Klang
The rendezvous with our tow boat went smoothly and the Jewel of Muscat arrived safely in Port Klang harbour today. Along the way, the crew celebrated the birthday of First Mate Khamis Al Hamdani with cheers, biscuits, and fruit juice all around. Captain Saleh also presented Khamis with a commemorative ship’s block engraved with the words: “Jewel of Muscat, 2010.”
The crew of the Jewel of Muscat was given a warm welcome by Zakariya Al Saadi from Oman’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ali Ahmed Shanfari, Oman’s Deputy Ambassador to Malaysia. They were then treated to an excellent meal at the Royal Selangor Yacht Club before being driven to their hotel for a good night’s sleep.
Depending on the weather, the Jewel of Muscat will remain in Port Klang until the 27th or 28th of June before setting off on its final voyage to Singapore.
