Boat Owners Beware!

FAKE NEWS!!

We have been informed that this news is inaccurate. Apparently there is NO ban on anchoring apart from in the marine nature reserve at Tango Bay. There is, however, an ongoing study by an environmental group from Valencia.

The study has now been completed and the report states that unlike that which happens in the sandy sea beds of Formentera, the Posodonia (sea grass) of the mainland Costa Blanca region is found on rocky substrates and the possibility of anchor dragging is less likely.  There is therefore no anchor restriction.

Original Post:

All boat owners should be aware that they can be heavily fined for anchoring anywhere in the Jávea bay area, as the sea bed is considered a nature preservation area, and anchors and chains can damage the ‘sea grass’.

All boats must use the mooring buoys. In Sardine Bay there are a maximum of 36, and in Cala Blanca there are another 24 – a total of approximately 60 maximum. See the photo (courtesy of Graham Hustler) above.

Be warned if planning to moor in this area, an early start is recommended to secure a mooring. The area will be policed by the Marine Guardia Civil, either in a rib, or on a jet ski.

A Big Set Back for the CBYA Dinghies!!

Categories:

We are very sad to report that we have been ‘broken into’ at El Portet, and our outboard motor has been stolen. In addition the aft locker on the new “Flying Fish” dinghy has had its lid torn off, and our life jackets which were stowed in there have also been taken! They also stole the Flying Fish trailer wheels, and its mainsheet. We are obviously being targeted because they have now also stolen our old rubber dinghy safety boat, as well as the rubber dinghy and cover which was chained up close to our storage box!
