    Ships nicknames

    When my son worked as a car marshall at Poole, he said that Barfleur was known as 'Barf-tub' and, yes, Cotentin was 'Cocoa-tin.'
  4. I was also wondering about this - she's currently entering the harbour after waiting for Barfleur to sail.

    Amorique visits Poole on Monday

    We did a day crossing on the Armorique on Thursday and we drove around the ramp and on to the lowest deck on the way out. Coming home we were put on to the next deck up, driving up the ramp to board and unloaded down Poole's ramp. There was a delay in Poole before we could drive off. We couldn't quite hear the reason given over the tannoy but it was something to do with the rough weather during the crossing.

    No, they 'lose-, not 'loose.'

    Barfleur

    Although I've frequently taken advantage of the day trip aspect, I think the real advantage if the 0830 sailing is that arriving in France at about 1345 (CET) gives plenty of time for onward travel.

    When my son had a summer job working as a car marshall at Poole, he said he and his colleagues always called the Barfleur 'Bath Tub' and Cotentin was 'Cocoa Tin.'

    Reading Lounge on Armorique

    Not relevant to the topic but I found this picture of the Armorique when she visited Poole in early 2010 https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox/126f23afb138e763?projector=1
