    Great pictures, thanks for posting. I once had a poster, bought on board I think, of the Armorique and Prince of Brittany tied up in St. Malo. It must have been around 1980/81, I've done a search online but alas I can't find it.
  2. Cork to Santander Route to Launch in 2018

    No sooner had I pressed post when I remembered Purbeck & Coutances.
  3. Cork to Santander Route to Launch in 2018

    i'm sure someone will correct me if i'm wrong but are Etretat & Connemara the first sisters Brittany Ferries have operated together?

  5. DFDS SEAWAYS: News & Updates

    Not sure you can get a connecting train between Kings Cross and St. Pancras, it's only a few minutes walk.
  6. HMS Queen Elizabeth

    Queen Elizabeth x 2. Love this shot, offers a perspective of Portsmouth Harbour I've never seen before.
  7. Interesting discussion regarding sat nav. Recently in San Diego our hire car sat nav packed in, luckily my phone was a great substitute, found restaurants, attractions etc. and all with an English accent!!! Can't really fault the technology. Slightly related, when i was a kid we holidayed in France with my cousins, the hours we spent waiting at a pre-arranged rendezvous point not knowing how long our family would be. No problem now with mobile phones.
  8. Barfleur lengthening ?

    Can't check now because I've long since binned them, but I'm fairly sure Ships Monthly referred to stability or dead weight issues as the reason for lengthening.
  9. Pont Aven

    Fantastic pics, until you get to the last one.
  10. 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.
  11. Baie de Seine/Etretat

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

  13. 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?
  14. Baie de Seine to leave BF Fleet/ Stena Eflexer to replace

    2021? Baie de Seine leaves in 2019 doesn't she?
  15. Webcam - Portsmouth Harbour Entrance

    Great lightning show over the Solent right now. http://www.camsecure.co.uk/portsmouth_harbour_webcam.html
