  1. SAILING UPDATES: 2017 Latest News

    Thats what they told me when i tweeted therm as well.
  2. BF Refits 2017-18

    Did the Armorique have any work done as does not look like they are near a ship yard or was she just laid up for a few weeks as she is back in service this coming week.
  3. St Malo Dockers’ Strike

    Surly we would hope that BF reroute PA on tomorrows sailing out of Portsmouth.
  4. St Malo Dockers’ Strike

    The PA has just left St Malo and on her AIS its saying she is heading to Portsmouth. So does she have passengers on board or not? its seems to me that the Dockers are saying yes ships can berth and offload passengers but no ships can leave with passengers on board. i still dont get how the dockers can stop BF AND Condor from loading up the ships as do they have anything to do with loading of the ships apart from berthing and leaving,
  5. St Malo Dockers’ Strike

    Condor Rapide has just left St Malo but going by Condors website she has no Passengers on board. The Pont is heading to her berth. one thing i dont understand is how can dockers stop Condor from loading Rapide with passengers?

    The Bretagne has just arrived in Le Havre for her rest.
  7. SAILING UPDATES: 2017 Latest News

    Pont is on her way to St Malo so looks like they will let her in but will they let her leave with passengers later on Saturday as on Friday it seems that Condor Rapid was allowed in to unload passengers but would not let her leave with passengers. so looks like the dockers are playing games a bit.

    I take it there would also have to be a chef on board to cook meals for the watchmen left on board. is it that easy to shut a ship down for a 3 month layup and get things going again for when she goes back into service?
  9. SAILING UPDATES: 2017 Latest News

    Looks like the Armorique is going to berth early as well as she has just picked up her Pilot in Roscoff and now heading onto her berth so looks like BF want there ships tied up early. take it that passengers wont get off till the normal time that she should had berth.

  12. SAILING UPDATES: 2017 Latest News

    Not sure if its the 1st time ever but irish ferries have cancelled all of Ulysses sailings from Holyhead today Monday. they seem to keep her going in any weather which makes me think this may be her 1st time having sailings cancelled. Also seen on AIS that the CF is heading to Brest not Roscoff.
  13. Wind Solution.

    Many thanks for that. i see she left Portsmouth at 12.30pm back to the windfarm.
  14. Wind Solution.

    See the floating hotel ship Wind solution has been along side in Portsmouth for just over 24 hours. i take it that she is loading stores and fuel but something got me thinking what happens to the workers who use it as a hotel while she is in Portsmouth? are they onboard or do they find them hotels near where the windfarm is? also why does it take her so long to restore?
