  1. Are you able to get tested to show if it is Cov19? If not can you get the one to show you have had Cov19 or are asymptomatic? Useful for you and those thou are close to!
  2. I posted this earlier:- I am about to renew my Club Voyage membership at the end of the month, now unlike most on here I regard BF primarily as a means of transport to visit family in Ireland, Wales, Scotland and England. The membership really helps to defray cost from Spain and back. Last year we added extra days at the end of the trip and had a super break visiting Paradors and Pousadas on our way home. The hotel costs combined with the return sailing was incredible so I aim to renew but! How do we stand if BF goes belly up or is nationalised by the French Government. They might honour the sailings but what about the extras and £120 renewal is no small cost. We normally travel north late July return mid September but will the ships be back at sea by then?

  4. If that’s the case what is the likely death rate for over 75s and what does that mean in numbers. They will have to put the cremators on 24/7/365 shifts to deal with the numbers. Most towns were on 3-4 week delay after death before ones loved one could be laid to rest.
  5. That’s odd on Pont and cap I always show my club voyage card and they always ask for the cabin key which SWMBO keeps in case I loose it so she has to delve into the bottomless bag to find it!
  6. A video of this repair would be very good and give a clear picture of how they did it.
  7. When we left Plymouth in September we discovered the mobile canteen as we queued in the car park. We were ravenous so left the car just long enough to get food and it was well worth it. Very good quality sandwiches and coffee kept us going until we boarded and got into la Flora.
  8. I’ll second that, not used the ferries that stick to the French routes but all the Spanish route and the Vincentis are not as good seakeepers as the Cap on the Biscay.
  9. That would be good we do the Santander/Cork route once every three years it should be July 2021 we would miss Kerry but we both like Cap and a proper restaurant as well. Bonus!
  10. Does that mean the Cap will be sold and move on?
  11. Every year we make the journey from our home in Ayamonte (on the Spanish/Algarve border) in July to Santander. We make the trip via Sevilla over two days with a stop over in Salamanca 5hrs first day 4hrs second day. We reverse the rout in September. There are no tolls on the route Ayamonte, Sevilla, Caceres, Salamanca, Valladolid, Palencia and Santander. We cross the border into Portugal most days for lunch, the east west A22motorway is a toll road but there are no tolls for the first two junctions. When we go to collect visitors at Faro it is necessary to get a toll ticket at the toll station just over the international bridge. This is very easy to do following the instructions on the ATM style box in the toll plaza. The ticket lasts one month and your credit card is debited for each segment of motorway after the second junction. It cost us about €9 for each trip to Faro 50km. This system operates all the way to the Atlantic west coast. The north/south Portuguese motorways are much more complicated as we found this September on our return via that route and a via Verde transponder is most useful and I understand works for all types of motorway.
  12. They will have no choice under EU law we will be an unlisted 3rd county at the moment we leave with no deal.
