  1. I thought it would be Santander, Bilbao, Cherbourg then Portsmouth with maybe a short in & out visit to Roscoff to be shown off, not the other way around but certainly said that she would dry dock after the trials.
  2. One of the crew, yes, as did the info about the berthing trial ports.
  3. Update: Galicia will be doing trials in Portsmouth, Cherbourg, Bilbao then Santander where the vessel will be handed over to Brittany Ferries crews and reflagged to Morlaix. Dates of the port visits are to be confirmed.
  4. I would say that the dry docking will last more than a day, I bet she'll likely be there for a week at the very least. Probably more than just work on her paint, could be some final external works that we don't know about.
  5. Kerry took 2 days to sail from Gibraltar to Santander, departing on October 14th 2019, arriving in Santander on October 16th.
  6. Dry Dock No. 2 is 230 metres (Length), 32 metres (Width). Galicia will fit with room to spare. If she does Algerciras on October 7th, you are looking at least 2 more days to Santander, if not 3. I can't see her doing Port Said to Algerciras in less than 3 days.
  7. According to Christophe Mathieu in his latest update, Galicia will arrive earlier than anticipated.
  8. Going back to my last @Gareth, I've just gone through my messages, it seems that Galicia will be dry docking at Astander (she will fit in Dock No.2). So it makes more sense to do her berthing trials there just before she dry docks.
  9. Not as far as I know, I think she's only in Algerciras for fuel. I'm still waiting to hear from my pilot mate to see if the call to Santander is going to happen but it would make sense to trial there first. It's only guess work at the moment.
  10. The Ice Buoy was a free floating Buoy, I can't see it damaging the ship that much.
