  6. No need to worry, she's fine. It's usual for her to drift off Plymouth on a Thursday evening as it's a long sailing time, so she has time to waste (drifting is cheaper than slow speed sailing). The Pont had to move off the berth in Roscoff this afternoon to allow the Armorique to berth. The sailing to Cork leaves Roscoff at 2030, so sounds like she left a little early
  7. An article in 'France bleu' reports that this was the first occasion in 25 years that the linkspan in Ouistreham was not available for a ship's call: https://www.francebleu.fr/infos/transports/les-ferries-accostent-de-nouveau-ouistreham-1491403461

  12. I knew posting that via mobile would end in trouble..
  13. A new series on Sky Atlantic, 'The Trip To Spain' has started, starring Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan. The first episode sees them travelling on the Pont-Aven from Plymouth to Santander. The more eagle eyed almost you may notice some cabin 'inconsistities'.
  14. City councillors have given the green light to a £10m development plan for Drakes Island. http://www.plymouthherald.co.uk/drake-s-island-hotel-plans-councillors-to-decide-on-10m-proposal-live-updates/story-30253787-detail/story.html
