  1. Pont Aven

    Fantastic pics, until you get to the last one.
  2. General Discussions on Brexit

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/09/24/new-spanish-migrant-route-sees-three-times-many-migrants-caught/ Although Brexit isn't solely about immigration and asylum, there is a link so i'll post this here. Mods please move if you feel it doesn't belong here. ps. this post is not an argument for or against Brexit.
  3. Baie de Seine/Etretat

    In a similar vein, who remembers this posted on here a few years ago.
  4. HMS Queen Elizabeth

    https://ukdefencejournal.org.uk/hms-gleaner-returns-to-portsmouth-for-final-survey-ahead-of-carrier-arrival/ HMS Gleaner in Portsmouth to survey harbour entrance.
  5. Hawser has often promoted the theory that the Western Channel is ripe for a competitor, including Stena, to come and muscle in on BF territory. With Stena and BF now beginning cooperate more and more closely it could be that Stena will achieve this in partnership with rather than against BF. Crazy theory or possible outcome?
  6. 2021? Baie de Seine leaves in 2019 doesn't she?
  7. Webcam - Portsmouth Harbour Entrance

    Great lightning show over the Solent right now. http://www.camsecure.co.uk/portsmouth_harbour_webcam.html
  8. Related but not strictly on topic but my question doesn't merit another thread. Was Superfast X modified to the same extent as Superfast 7/8? If she was and Stena place a Chinese new build on Holyhead - Dublin could Superfast X move to Fishguard?
  9. HONFLEUR - Arriving June 2019

    Might be a major problem when the unions blockade Dunkirk.
  10. AFAIK these four ships have been allocated to Stena's Belfast services, could BF have another Stena ship in mind. Stena also have options for 4 more ferries but I can't find any information on whether these have been ordered. Maybe the orders depend on future charter arrangements. So it looks like BF plan the following: Normandie to replace Etretat Unknown Stena ropax to replace Baie de Seine.
  11. HMS Queen Elizabeth

  12. HONFLEUR - Arriving June 2019

    http://uk.reuters.com/video/2017/06/23/brittany-ferries-investing-despite-brexi?videoId=371950749 Interview with Cristophe Mathieu about the new build, some good aerial shots as well.
  13. Baie de Seine/Etretat

    I can't understand why Etretat misses a rotation on Thur/Fri. She could keep her daily evening rotation and the Baie de Seine provide an extra service to Le Havre on Fri morning returning Fri night as she does now. Anyone have any thoughts, could it be lack of traffic or another reason.
  14. General Discussions on Brexit

    Solo, you've described this thread to a T.
  15. The Demise of Cherbourg

    The problem with this though is that of the 3 operators who served Cherbourg, the 2 that have completely abondoned Cherbourg didn't have a service to Ouistreham. (Not counting 1 season of fast ferry from P&O.)
