The Spanish Customs, together with the Guardia Civil and the National Police, intercepted two sailing boats in the Canary Islands, which together transported about 1.1 tons of cocaine. One of the boats was named “My Love” and sailed under the Belgian flag. With the permission of the Belgian authorities, the ship was boarded in international waters.


On board were two crew members, of Spanish nationality, who were arrested. The crew and sailboat have been transferred to the port of Tenerife to be brought to court. That already happened on March 3, but only released this week. The arrest was made 463 kilometers from Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

The bales containing the blocks of cocaine could be seen on the deck with the naked eye.

Second sailboat

After the interception and the mooring of the sailboat to the Customs vessel, information was received about a second sailboat. That ship was also detained and those on board arrested.

The information that had come in came from the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the British authorities.

Together, the sailboats transported a total of more than 1,100 kilos of cocaine.
