Clean boaters

AS a resident of Javea and a boat owner I agree that a large amount of debris and rubbish is regularly washed up on the pebble beach, including Palm Tree trunks!

But it is not correct to say ( Costa Blanca North, Litter-bugs, Issue 1433) this is caused by owners of small boats.

Most leisure craft owners that anchor in Sardine Bay are respectable people and take their rubbish home with them.

The litter I see, such as broken pallets, oil drums, old tyres, lengths of thick waste rope, and old fishing nets, is either dumped or washed off the decks of passing commercial ships and fishing boats.
