  1. Looks like theres going to be some layout changes soon at Plymouth, after checking in. New lanes have been marked out where the cleaners car park used to be, the freight office and toilets have gone and theres also new lanes marked out on the quayside. They were also putting a fence up between the loading lanes and the terminal car park when I was there this afternoon.

  3. Bretagne - Plymouth

    I got there about 9.30am. Had a heavy shower whilst walking over from the terminal car park. Blowing a gale as well...!!
  4. Bretagne - Plymouth

    Went down to Plymouth yesterday morning to get some pictures, although after she had docked. Managed to get one with a Princess Yachts 48 sailing past
  5. French CRIT'Air Certificate

    I shall probably invest in one once my new car arrives in a week or two, as there are three or four departments in Western France (Deux-Sevres, Vienne, Vendee and Maine-et-Loire) that are classed as 'air protection zones' and which I shall either be staying in or driving through this summer. They do say the price for shipments to France will reduce from 4,18€ to 3,62€ from 1st March, not sure whether the same price applies to the UK
  6. Cork to Santander Route to Launch in 2018

    That track was the first thing that sprung to mind when I heard the name...
  7. Security, what is your opinion.

    A couple of updates to the security at Roscoff yesterday afternoon. Had the usual search of the car once checked in, but this time, a small yellow sticker with 'Contrôle sûreté' was attached to the windscreen afterwards. I noticed a number of vehicles had this sticker. There didn't appear to be any additional gendarmes, although one was making sure that dashcams were switched off. There was also a large mobile scanning device for the freight.
  8. SAILING UPDATES: 2017 Latest News

    Yes, awful on the Pont last night, wallowed and rolled for the whole crossing. Not my worse crossing, but pretty close. Arrived on time, though, but I'm still feeling the effects of it now six hours later...!!! Hopefully the weather will improve before I return on Sunday week
  9. SAILING UPDATES: 2017 Latest News

    Friday evenings Plymouth-Roscoff sailing is now leaving at 20.30, instead of 22.00, with, I assume, an earlier arrival time to try and beat the worse of the storm
  10. SAILING UPDATES: 2017 Latest News

    I'm booked on the Thursday evening Plymouth-Roscoff. Just had a text from BF to say that the sailing has been delayed by 45 minutes, now leaving at 21.30. Also means that the incoming Armorique will also be delayed in docking
  11. Having sailed on both the Pont and the Armorique in the last couple of weeks, I noticed that all the fruit machines had been removed on both ships, with the areas they occupied being left empty. Have they also been removed on other ships, and does anyone know why? Just curious, thats all.
  12. Security, what is your opinion.

    I sailed back from Roscoff yesterday, and having seen this post prior to sailing, I was expecting to be searched, but other than 2 or 3 gendarmes stationed before the check-in booths, there didn't appear to be any extra security, and no-one on board. I wasn't searched either.
  13. security on board

    Didn't see any on the overnight crossing from Plymouth last Friday but there were 5 or 6 on the return crossing Saturday afternoon.
  14. Unread content

    To start with, great new site. Just one little thing I've picked up on, which may or may not be an issue. When you click on "Unread Content" under "Activity" and then select a content type and click "Apply", nothing changes until you refresh the page. I tend to click on "Topics" so it would just show the unread posts, but it still shows the images posted until the page is refreshed. Actually, on checking further, none of the options change anything until you refresh the page.
