  1. It's not Brittany Ferries, it's Compagnie Maritime Nantaise. I was told yesterday that she would be going to Ferrol as Astander are booked up for quite a few weeks. MN Pelican didn't go to Astander last time either.
  2. MN Pelican will be dry docked in El Ferrol.
  3. There's been a suggestion, which Tarby also covered that E-Flexer means Efficiency - FLEXer
  4. Stena used NMSML for the delivery voyage, the delivery voyage had nothing to do with Brittany Ferries until Galicia arrived in Santander. My source, who was the master for the delivery voyage is employed under the NMSML arm of the company.
  5. That is because, at that time, I was unaware that Northern Marine were responsible for the delivery voyage as many were guessing that Stena or BF themselves would be doing it. Northern Marine is an offshoot of Stena and as far as i know, NMSML crews do not crew a regular service. My source who sent me photos during Galicia's delivery voyage told me weeks ago that he would be delivering Salamanca which is currently scheduled for November, and I would guess that he will also be doing Santona too.
  6. Galicia wasn't delivered by Stena Crews, only Embla, Estrid and Edda have been. As above, I said that Salamanca will be delivered by Northern Marine Ship Management LTD, as Galicia was.
  7. Registered in Limassol for the delivery voyage, the same as Galicia was registered in Portsmouth for her delivery voyage. The team who delivered Galicia will also be delivering Salamanca, (Northern Marine Ship Management).
  8. The next ship to join Brittany Ferries’ fleet will be called Salamanca, she will be powered by cleaner LNG and she took to the water for the first time last week. Salamanca's launch ceremony took place on 6 January 2021 at the CMJL shipyard in Weihai, China, where she is under construction. She is the second of three E-Flexer class ships ordered by Brittany Ferries and will join sister-ship Galicia, when she enters service in the spring of 2022. Fleet renewal is one of the pillars of Brittany Ferries’ five-year recovery plan. The investment in new ships was made well before the pande

  10. Brittany Ferries 'Mont St Michel' returning to Portsmouth International Port today after spending 3 weeks in Gdansk, Poland undergoing her refit.
  11. Former HMS Bristol is still there, Galicia took out the South Cardinal Pile and bumped Bristol. Bristol was decommissioned some time ago and now sits empty.
  12. Galicia just given her 15 minute call to QHM, although radioed in as Cap Finistere.
  13. 3 tugs, CMS Warrior and Scotsman from SMS Towage and SD Bountiful of Serco.
  14. Galicia has all day in Cherbourg once a week, plenty of time to sort it out.
  15. Most likely any damage was above the waterline.
