Palma.—Most of the Port of Soller, in particular boat owners and the yachting industry, remained confused yesterday over moves by the Costas coastal police to stop yachts from mooring off and dropping anchor out in the Bay of Soller.

As the Bulletin reported yesterday, a number of boat owners are already facing fines of up to 3'000 euros and many other owners are worried about putting their boats in the water.

However, while all the relevant coastal authorities in Soller are claiming they know nothing about what is going on, it appears that the mayor wants to enforce a restriction on how close yachts can moor to the coast.

The new limit is going to apparently be 200 metres which will mean some of the smaller yachts, according to port sources, will be forced to moor out near the mouth of the bay where there is little protection.
