    I can understand the local fishermen being unhappy when their achorages were occupied by yachts.

    Well said that Man. I live aboard an MG Spring 25 in Vilamoura and only draw 0.9m so opening Alvor up to the drunken masses will ruin it. There are already bars there that sell Lager at €1 a pint all day, every day, so it's only going to get worse......

    The drunken masses are already there and have been for years, via Ryan Air.

    Least being mainly irish they can handle a few beers.

    Unhappy Re: Ria de Alvor

    I've not had a beer in Alvor for a pound a pint for a long time now. Probably 2004 or so. Maybe in a happy hour somewhere but I always manage to miss those.

    What makes it their anchorage? Being commercial vessels shouldn't they either be out fishing or in port?

    It is / was their port. It's where they land their fish and live for many of them. AND they were there a long time before we were.
