  1. Found the below pin badge in the loft bit of a rare one
  2. Ive been told the Vic is out of action due to engine failure
  3. We are clearing out the loft please let me know if anyone wants this before i throw it
  4. Back when the Val & Bretagne did St Malo and Cherbourg
  5. Found this whilst emptying the loft over the weekend !
  6. As a family of 4 we last used BF in 2016, sailing on Friday night on the cap, returning on the Saturday night crossing. if we were to sail again we would chose cap again on the Friday morning. What doesn’t work for us with all the other crossing times is they don’t join up with the likes of Siblu Resorts who do Saturday - Saturday as a standard. Yes we lost one night in 2016 as a result of this but this year we could get to the resort comfortably by the afternoon. The reason why we skipped using BF for the last 4 years is when you add up food, travel, accommodation you may as well go all inclusive. Oh and the biscay was unfriendly to us on the return crossing. who knows what we do summer ‘21 ! But not a Galicia or Pont Aven trip for us. I also don’t fancy spending more than 24 hours on a boat. WiFi isn’t good enough for our family and they will get bored !
  7. Gareth im struggling to keep up with the posts. Does it really matter what day to the enthusiasts, 4th /5th whenever. Becoming a painful forum again.
  8. Higher Freight Lower Passenger in direct comparison to Armorique just Incase anyone needs that clarification.
  9. In comparison cotentin would have higher freight lower passenger once converted imo as deck 6 on armorique2 is passenger and deck 6 on the cotentin would stay as a garage deck, just add another block and lift up that paper thin funnel, job done ✅ (or maybe not).
  10. And a container ship in our way, lovely crossing and a lovely boat to be stuck on
  11. First time on the Victoria, very nice, sadly a little delayed on this mornings 9am as a truck has broken down
  12. Tony, I’ve been a member on this site for over 15 years and before that on its previous incarnation, and like you I’m getting fed up of this constant moaning, which I think needs to stop before I turn my back on this site for good. Be thankful for what you’ve still got and that your still alive. Let’s hope we can all get out of this dire situation ASAP! I am missing being able to book a meal in the Still & West and enjoying a nice bite to eat and a pint of ale surrounded with the people I love. No holiday for us either this August but again I still have my family and we will make the most of a rubbish situation. Take care everyone and let’s try and be positive.
  13. Feeling for anyone who has been travelling back on the cap, just over 27 hours later shes finally on approach! having sailed on her on a bad biscay crossing you would have more than had enough by now
