Now all they have to do is the other nine and many problems will be solved;-)

hf_uk runs for the hills.

I think most folk on here would let the French keep at least one certain ship 😉

Yes it was somewhat tongue in cheek. However, I never thought I would see the day. De-nationalising (although this is far from it) does make sense financially for many reasons.

Google Translate as a PDF attachment for us non French speaking members. For some reason this forum wont allow "pasting" due to security settings.

 

 

 

 

Hmm, strange... possibly more the browser than us as works for me.

NEX originally had British Deck and Technical crew and was registered in Nassau when she was introduced in 2005 but the French unions kicked up a fuss and got her re-registered to Caen and a full French crew.

 

By French union logic Cap Finistere should be crewed by British or Spanish seafarers, after all they had British Officers removed from the original LD Lines vessel on the Gijon-St Nazaire run as they said it should be crewed by nationals of the country it runs between..... Cap Finistere only calls at Roscoff to carry out a crew change.

G4rth did you look at the first post in this thread?

 

No Solo I didn't see the thread at all. Since the recent high winds I've been having internet connection problems so I wonder if I was looking at a cached page this morning. Either that or I need to visit the opticians.
