    A lot of passage (cargo) strong constant swell, we were forced to leave the anchorage early in the morning by a pilot boat from the port of Tarifa. Impossible to anchor or be around Tarifa despite the authorization noted on the nautical charts.

    Énormément de passage (cargo) forte houle constante, nous avons étés forcés de quitter le mouillage tôt dans la matinée par un bateau pilote du port de Tarifa. Impossible de mouiller ou que se soit autour de Tarifa malgré l’autorisation noté sur les cartes marines.

    We even weren’t close to drop the anchor, when a pilot boat approached us and informed us that anchoring is prohibited. This applies to both sides of the Punta de Tarifa island. On the east side, fines are doubled because it‘s also prohibited to anchor close to the marina entrance, even if not blocking or interfering with traffic. Strange that several independent issues of charts and regional guidebooks are all wrong... We checked the marina, but decided to not stay there, avoiding a potential damage to the boat or getting some of the cockroaches that even weren’t shy of bright daylight sun.
