The Maritime Service of the Guardia Civil this week accused three recreational boat companies of several irregularities while they were anchored together in the islet of Los Lobos, while organising a party.
The three boats were a catamaran, a sailing boat and a semi-rigid boat moored at the harbour of Los Lobos.
A patrol boat of the Guardia Civil verified the existence of several irregularities for these boats, such as the lack of documentation, the lack of a title of two of the owners and the excess of passengers on board.
In total, there were 12 administrative complaints, such as lack of proof of liability insurance and the lack of clearance necessary for a recreational boat to carry out lucrative activities.
In addition, the skipper of one of the boats was not enrolled in his crew, and the other two skippers of the other two boats lacked qualifications for this function.
