  1. Went to Ringaskiddy Cork to see the Pont Aven today. Also drove to Crosshaven to see it pass Roches point. Here are a few snaps.
  2. I came across a new (for me) webcam for Roscoff. It is viewing from the lighthouse. Webcam Roscoff - Bretagne - France - Vision-Environnement
  3. A photo of an advert for Cork Swansea ferries from 1995.
  4. Le Havre map of harbour. 1973 brochure.
  5. This is the Saint Patrick taken in Le Havre 1976. Was returning to Ireland after two weeks camping as a scout in Rouelles near Le Havre. H.
  6. A few snaps from Roscoff May 25th 2015.
  7. I have the print of the Kerisnel and Pont. I must get it framed, after lockdown of course.
  8. I have seen some paintings of BF ships before but was wondering if any of you have some. Attached is a detail of a painting of the Pont and Roches point that was done for me by a Cork artist. Might distract a bit. H.
  9. If the Admin want to close this I have no problem with that. It seems to me that the investment BF have made on this route would indicate that they are in it for the long run. I was enquiring as to if anyone else had heard rumour's that there may be a change. H.
  10. Heard last night that Cork Santander will be cancelled at end of February. Has anyone else heard any news of same?
  11. Great report. Have often been to Quiberon but never out to the Ille. Think I'll have to go next time!
  12. "Docking into Ringaskiddy was watched very carefully at the rear by the cork pilot(see pic). This is something I have never seen before and it took a few minutes back and forward before she was properly lined up." Have seen the pilot boat like this before. I think the Pilot gets off at the car ramp. Good that Pont is back anyways.
  13. I notice that bookings from Cork to Roscoff and vive versa are not bookable 'til May 24th/25th. Does this imply that the Pont Aven will be out of service until then?
  14. Pont Aven delayed into Cork. At berth about 15.30. About six hours behind. Presume it will leave around around 19.00/19.30.
