Cala Tualera/Mahon - another mooring rip-off attempt!

02 July 2016 | Cala Taulera/Mahon
C&C
Chris did go ashore to watch the England football game but rather wished he hadn’t, it was almost as big a shock as the ‘Brexit’ vote. What a useless bunch. Writing this now on the morning after Wales have just reached the semi-final with victories driven by passion, belief and teamwork it makes you wonder how such a supposedly talented group could fail so completely. Come on Wales!
We spent two nights in Cala Tualera which were comfortable even though there was some wind. One evening we spent a couple of hours on board the British flagged ‘Penny Lane’ with Dick and Joan and her sister Sue chatting about how awful things were in the UK right now, it’s good to know we aren’t the only ones who think they’ve all gone mad back home!
We were intending to stop a further night but the next morning a Port Authority boat came round and handed all the boats a notice that this was only an approved anchorage when the marinas were full. They weren’t full so we had to move – intending for us to go into the marina and pay of course! The trouble with this sort of stupid commercially driven policy is that sailors are by nature somewhat independent and don’t like to be pushed around and ripped off. We left after about half the boats had gone and, like all the rest, headed off away from Mahon. I’m sure hardly anyone went into the marina. We have read about this approach happening in Mahon for the past few years but it was supposed to have stopped this year, clearly not! We will avoid the marinas there unless we really need to now.
