Dear KC – As an annual Irish visitor to Hydra I went to swim off the rocks near Kamini this morning 14.7.12. I was horrified to see that the immediate off-shore waters were polluted by a fetid mix of plastic objects inc bags and bottles as well as other unidentifiable substances. There was also a lot of foamy scum which suggested a dumped chemical substance. This filthy pollution stretched from Kamini to Spilia. Upon enquiry, I discovered that residents at Kamini believe the culprits to have neen the occupants of a large grey coloured yacht that was anchored off Kamini harbour on the evening of 13.7.12. Unfortunately no-one I spoke to had photographed the vessel or noted any ID. I then reported the matter to Pan the Hydra harbour master and he confirmed that the yacht in question had not registered with him. I will leave the matter with the Kamini Comet in the hope that the culprits can be identified and reported to the relevant authorities.
