    Apparently they canít fine you, but if you mess them about they can call a man who can!

    Ugh. We are 19m. We normally go at the back but in the middle, right where the Cala splits in two, in front of the hotel sunloungers on the cliff.

    This creeping restriction by socialists on people enjoying their hard earnt pleasures really gets up my nose, normally somewhere on the grounds of " ... saving the Planet ... " no doubt by idiots in RIBS with massive petrol outboards and cars parked on the jetty where they are based.

    Happening now with the thin end of the wedge labelled MCZ in the UK, e.g. Studland. I guess we will have to get used to it.

    I'm In portals vells right now, and there's no sign of any weed police, and no sign of anyone paying attention to the rules.

    Anchored in a small Cala in the South of Ibiza yesterday and was moved on by a young lady from the Posidonia Patrol because, although my anchor was in sand, my chain was touching some Posidonia.

    We nosed in to Vells a couple of days ago on route back from Camp de Mar. At 7pm it was full with every size of boat imaginable. No change from last year, so it may be monitored, but it's certainly not closed off.

    we overnighted in Vells last night. Arrived at 9am ish whene there were a handful of boats in there, so bagged a nice spot. It was filled to the brim by early afternoon. There were probably about 10 or so other boats that stayed for the night, no sign of poseidona police all day.

    Just back from a 2 week cruise around Mallorca weather & sea conditions were great.... so back to the posedonia issue, Portals Vells was full most days so anchoring is not restricted however there was some 'vigilante' activity, seem to be quite pleasant about their business & politely asking those in weed to move (although it looked like at least 50% were in weed!) I know one of the restuarant owners quite well, he tells me his business is down but not desimated , another area that is zoned is Cala Foradada on the west coast, that was also full of boats & no sign of 'vigilantes' business as usual (in fact couldn't get a table in the cliff restuarant), no problems in any of the other west coast anchorages

    North coast was the same, down the west coast the 'vigilante' activity was more noticeable particularly many of the anchorages near to Cala D'or, we were checked a number of times all ok & even got a friendly wave from the guys on the rib's, South coast we did not encounter any 'vigilante's' not especially surprised as this is where most of the locals hang out !

    The biggest issue we found were some of the unofficial locals on boats, we had encounters with 2, who seem to be treating the posidonia as almost a religion, doing a lot of shouting of where you can or cannot anchor in quite an aggressive manner which at some point I'm sure will result in violent clashes between them & some boat loads of guys on charter yachts who won't take so kindly to their 'advice'.

    So despite the apprehension that we would not be welcome in some places, the cruise was excellent with restuarants, marinas etc being very welcoming & helpful.... don't be put off by this issue, anchoring in weed is carp anyway although ensuring chain is clear is a bit more challenging, it did seem the 'vigilantes' were a little more accomodating on that.

    Thanks for the update! Iím out in two weeks time and intending to do a cruise all the way around too. The vigilantes sound somewhat alarming! Presumably they have no force of law although am guessing could call those that do if they determine youíre damaging the weed. As you say, we always anchor in sand because of the holding but hard to ensure chain does not venture close to the weed!
