1 – Fish don’t eat melon skins so please don’t throw them in the sea.
2 – We know your huge great noise, air and sea polluting boat is faster than ours, you don’t need to get so close to us, at speed, to prove it.
3 – TM – you need more patrol boats out there – perhaps with regular wardens on – they at least can write some tickets out. No point forcing a licence on sea goers if no policing is in place.
4 – Teenagers – stop jumping off cliffs into the sea. It’s been done. It’s not safe. It’s not the only way to get a free helicopter ride.
5 – Party boats – go where there are no other boats. Your passengers are surely too drunk to know / care if anyone is around them.
6 – Seaside eateries – we know your season is short, but not as short as people’s holidays. Please don’t overcharge. There’s a lot of coast and a lot of Summer. Play nicely.
7 – Vodafone / GO / Melita – can we have voice and data coverage all around the islands please?
8 – There’s a market for a shop-ship selling fruit and veg and bread, milk and papers at the weekends….
9 – There’s a market for watertaxi’s from the shore to boats – I would offer, but my dinghy skills are laughable.
Have a look at this graphic before you throw anything in the sea
