Jet-Ski Protest Today

There will be a protest on La Herradura beach this morning, demonstrating against the excesses caused by some jet-ski users.

It is hoped that visitors and tourist alike, both from La Herradura and Almuñécar will attend, to make the complaints reach the right quarters.

So, anybody who wants a quieter bay, without the noisy presence of illegal ski jets, or more accurately with the noise of jet-ski users breaking safety regulations, then please go to the meeting.

Also present will be the Ecologistas en Acción yacht, Diosa Maat, whose members will make their voice heard together with the visitors and residents of La Herradura.

Turn up in your car, on the bus, or even on a paddle-surf or a kayak from further along the bay. If you are lucky enough to have a sailing dinghy, yacht or any other craft, go along and lend your voice to the protest.

The event is organised by Bahía Tranquila, which is a protest platform made up of citizens of Almuñécar/La Herradura and which has no political affiliation.

So when and exactly where?

At ten o’clock in the morning organisers will be present, sorting everybody out and then at 11.00h those gathered will be addressed before setting off. Organisers will be handing out leaflets on what the platform hopes to achieve concerning restrictions on this kind of leisure craft. The meeting place is where there is a landing channel and beaching area for boats, which is up the Peña Parda end, we believe.

    Ok, Martin. The pen maybe mightier then the sword. Or pamphlets in this case. But I still feel a huge wadge of money going missing, really hurts more and having people chatting to you at the entrance of your work or home is a bit more forecful.

    Patrick: there are far more people on the beaches, especially this weekend, who will witness the protest, than milling past town halls in the centre of town. No, the beach is the show front of the Town Council so it is where it will hit hardest.

    Stopped by a leaflet. Marvelous. Hope you keep well hydrated. But maybe stand outside councilors’ casas & protesting, outside town halls, in places where decisions are made. Or, far easier and more effective ways; hit the illegal and or dangerous jet skiers in their pockets. Ditto the Salobrena twits. Mind you, they may not be locals.
