  • Don’t discharge black/dirty or bilge water into the shipyard waters, into the Port of Palma or in coves whilst anchored.
  • We have special containers for each type of waste. If you cannot locate the correct containers (paper, glass, organic, packaging, etc.), please ask our staff.
  • Waste oil, dirty waters and any other contaminating product should be kept on board until you can deposit it safely at the port facilities provided for this purpose.
  • Depositing plastics, glass, oils, containers, drums, fuel, oily waters or shower, kitchen or bath water into the sea is prohibited.
  • Don’t throw any harmful product or substance over board.
  • Take care of your boat. Keeping your boat in optimum condition with a clean hull will reduce fuel consumption.
  • Carry out regular checks on fuel tanks, hoses and connections to prevent polluting leakage into the sea.
  • Moderate your sailing speed: as well as saving fuel you will also help care for the environment.
  • Don’t keep engines running unnecessarily.
  • Don’t anchor in protected zones. Respect the marine flora and fauna both on the water surface as well as on the sea bed.
  • Respect the restricted anchoring zones and look after our environment.
  • Allocate a specific place on board to store your rubbish and deposit it every day in the containers when you reach port.
  • If you cannot locate the correct containers (paper, glass, organic, packaging, etc.), please ask our staff.
  • Waste oil, dirty waters and any other contaminating product should be kept on board until you can deposit it safely at the port facilities provided for this purpose.
  • The remains of chopped food may only be deposited in the sea if the boat is more than 12 miles from the coast.
  • Throwing plastics, packaging, containers, glass, oils, combustible waste, oily waters or those from hand washing, showers, toilets and galleys into the sea is prohibited.
WATER
  • Don’t leave the shut-off valve open when you are cleaning your boat.
  • Use biodegradable soaps and detergents.
  • Check and repair connections and any holes in hoses so they do not leak.
  • Notify the professional sailor services team if you detect any leak in the supply network.
  • It is better to shower than have a bath: this way, you will save lots of water each time.
  • Turn off the tap while you are shaving or brushing your teeth.
  • If you wash up by hand, don’t leave the tap running.
