    Very true but as we know buoyage around The Algarve is sparse at not always that reliable - as visitors sometimes discover!

    For many years entry to The Guadiana was a case in point but of late it has improved.

    In this case I suspect Spain & Portugal hold each other responsible but little comfort of you end up on the training wall (on the Spanish side)

    Doubt if any of that will get you a discount...... "But I don't look at the lights or buoys, I should pay less!"

    Agree.

    Better still don't sail in the dark after beer '0clock. Rather than pick up one of their's I would prefer to drink from my pot. Then there all all of those 'bits of string' in the water so after dark, if not in the bar, I will be at least 5nm off shore all around the Iberian Coast.

    But back to topic - As said before, it will be interesting to see how emandvee44 gets on at the Portimao Capitania?

    See Greeny managed to get a good deal; wonder where that was?

    M & V just back from the Capitania - do not go there! - They will charge 70 for 6 months for foreigners, and I asked them to confirm that it was for 6 months, not one year. The very nice lady did say sorry, but what could she do.

    Ours is due in June so may look at other options (like leaving the country)

    Cheers,

    Paid 8.50 for a portuguese registered rib earlier this year. Last time I paid for the SSR sailing boat was last year around June time and it was 11.50. It's obviously gone up now. Both these payments were at Portimao but sounds like they've increased their prices as have the rest. I'll recheck the paperwork for the rib next time i'm down at the boat.

    Thanks for that warning. I'll keep away from Portimao this year. Don't understand where the 6 months came from though if the list published earlier in the thread is correct. I'll make some discreet enquiries and try to find out.

    I took it straight from the Diario da Republica so more correct would be difficult to find. As has been seen in the past not all Capitanias are efficient.

    Think that is what some of us are banking on❗️
