The enormous increase in the numbers of high powered Jet Skies whizzing dangerously between innocent children and holiday makers attempting to enjoy their holidays at the seaside is mind boggling !
How long before we have a number of tragic accidents where some child is decapitated or some unfortunate swimmer maimed for life ?
I have seen young children trying to drive these machines ( with Daddy's proud encouraging approval ) whereby, because of their small stature and lack of strength, they are totally blind to the area directly in front of their speeding potential killer Jet Ski .
Then Teenage brother takes over and piles three girls on the back and roars off between those lucky enough to get out of his showoff way .
Why no licence, age limit , identity number , designated area minimum 300 metres from buoys beaches, anchorages ?
Get the Majorcan Government to legislate now against this madness and help to keep this idyllic Island safe for it's residents and tourists .

I lived on Majorca for 20 years and always took the Bulletin and admired Jason Moore's abilities as editor,however I read with dismay his letter re-poor service in two establishments, not the fact that the service was sub-standard but the fact that he did not complain!!.Having been in the Bar/Restaurant industry for a very long time,30 years I told guests if you are happy with our product and service,tell your friends,if not then tell methat way there's a good chance of rectifying any errors.I seems Jason's got it the wrong way round.
