Pont-Aven berthing

Recommended Posts

Evening,

 

Is there any particular reason why Pont-Aven berths stern in at Plymouth and bow-in at Roscoff? All other vessels have always berthed the other way round (Armorique, Val, Bretagne, Pont L'Abbe, etc.).

 

Having regularly travelled on Armorique and Bretagne, which berth bow-in UK side (I prefer it this way), it was strange to board PA stern-in, I felt more disorientated.

 

Thanks

 

(MODS- Can this thread be moved to Q&A? Placed it in news board by accident. :)

We've covered this a number of times in other threads. My conclusion on this matter is to do with the preferred berthing mode in Cork. With a preference to reverse into the berth at Ringaskiddy rather than out of it, Pont Aven's berthing modes at Plymouth, Portsmouth, Roscoff and Santander during the summer months follow. During the winter months, where Cork is not an issue but the imperative to berth stern-in at St Malo comes to the fore, Pont Aven berths the other way round in Portsmouth, Plymouth and Santander.

Thanks Gareth for your response. However that is strange considering how when Val served Cork, she berthed bow-first. Perhaps its because of PA's bigger dimensions ???
