  1. She looked pretty impressive as she passed the Still and West! Blue skies too!
  2. Looks as though the "De-Luxe" cabins on the Cap Finistere have been recalssified as "Commodore Suites".
  3. The Condor Rapide set sail today, to Jersey. The weather gods haven't been particularly kind though
  4. The ETA on AIS systems entered manually, so should only be used as a guide. Same for the destination, which is often not changed.
  5. The latest CEO update points to a new 'life onboard' page on their website, which details what services are now available onboard: https://www.brittany-ferries.co.uk/information/coronavirus/life-on-board#tab-4 The sailings update page still says all sailings cancelled up to the 28th June though :/
  6. Thanks Tony, but that’s in daylight... the first Cap sailing with passengers departed in the early hours of Monday morning.
  7. 😄 Beats those awful looking sail rotors! With Pont sailing to Santander and the Cap Finistere carrying passengers to Spain (no photo of Cap I'm afraid, too early for me!), we need to crack open the Sangria!
  8. Thanks so much for sharing Mark!

    Was today the Kerry’s first call into Roscoff?
  10. Pont-Aven is on her way to Spain! Things are slowly starting to feel a little more normal...
  11. Not good news for St Malo. https://guernseypress.com/news/2020/06/26/french-stevadore-firm-goes-into-liquidation-creating-a-challenge-for-condor/
  12. Does anyone recall BF operating to Dieppe from Portsmouth in 1985?
  13. There have been couple of cruise ships call into Portsmouth for crew repatriations too - some pics attached.
  14. Looks like FerryPubs have yet another BF book in the offing - 'Building Brittany Ferries' (to be re titled 'Brittany Ferries - From Cause to a Brand'). https://www.ferrypubs.co.uk/product/creating-brittany-ferries/
  15. Wonder if they can make one for the Val too - that would go on the roof
  16. Just had to share this awesome retro graphic of the Bretagne, akin to those of the great ocean liners!
  17. Cap Finistere was involved in the rescue of a yachtsman of the yacht ‘Loulette’ in the early hours of the morning. A massive well done to all involved, highlighting the professionalism of the ships crew. https://voilesetvoiliers.ouest-france.fr/securite-en-mer/sauvetage/un-plaisancier-francais-sauve-par-un-bateau-de-la-britanny-ferries-cc539a5a-7cd7-11ea-8704-84c321edc3c2

    VOYAGE: Magazine

    The Spring/Summer edition of Voyage Magazine has now been published, and is available to view online. This edition appears to combine 'Voyage' with the former onboard 'My Cruise' magazine. https://edition.pagesuite-professional.co.uk/html5/reader/production/default.aspx?pubname=&edid=f69713b6-a5b6-4055-9de4-0a30808a0854 Perfect reading for the Easter weekend
  19. And a time, now more than ever, for fellow enthusiasts to support the company during this difficult period.
  20. Purely co-incidental I would say. Pont-Aven is primarily a passenger vessel, given reduced demand is logical to withdrawn her. Etretat (already back in service) traffic can be transferred to Caen with minimal distribution.
  21. ... and so her work is done. Merci et bon voyage Baie de Seine.
