    Do you need a Spanish skipper's licence even to helm, or do they not understand the concept of a skipper.

    Glad I'm going to be out of there in a week or so, the med coast of Spain is the worst cruising ground I've ever seen, why are they so intent of driving people away? Although saying that I'm sure they'll be enough Daily Mail readers left to pay their fines and extortionate marina costs.

    Unfortunately they only understand whatever concept they feel like at the time.

    4) In which dock were you wakeboarding ??? Some are more sensitive than others !!!! Some have restrictions in place, others don't, some are military areas, others just plain commercial. Fines differ !!!
    5) Did you say anything or have any contact with those who have fined or notified you of a fine ???
    6) On what date did the incident occur ???

    Please keep answers short and sweet, if you can.

    Wakeboarding is like waterskiing but on a single board, bit tricky at 7 knots, normally done at 20 knots upwards!

    In order for a fine to be valid, the notification must either be handed over on the spot or sent to your home or business address within the 30 days following the alleged offence, by registered mail. The notification must state, amongst other things, the time and date of the alleged infraction, the issuing person, the affected persons ID and the precise infraction allegedly commited.

    The docks in question, are they the ones near the bridge, or the ones just beside Puerto America ???

    I would put the matter in the hands of a good lawyer and quibble both the reason for and the amount of the fine. If the boats insurance policy provides legal cover, use it.

    Can the owner of the boat take any action to resolve the problem ??? Or has he washed his hands ???
