And off she goes...

I can confirm, she does fit Millbay (this is from the opposite side of Plymouth Hoe, next to the barracks)

Will the  remainder of the E Flexers be required to carry out berthing trials now that Galicia has been successful at the various ports and leave it at that  .

Unlikely, unless there is a fundamental change to the design. The fact they will be LNG powered shouldn't have any impact though.

Has any Facebook or Twitter user on here asked BF whether there will be 'early boarding' at Cherbourg on Monday evenings in December before the return to Portsmouth? I presume that Monday will be crew change day, but that won't take 16 hours, or whatever.

Note to Chris - Above checked for spelling, sense, apostrophes and split infinitives. Verdict - orl corekt.

I stand to be corrected, but in current circumstances would have thought there would be a preference for passengers to remain in their vehicles for as long as possible.

Galicia is now scheduled to move to Dry Dock No.2 at Astander tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon at 13:00 local time and is due to remain there until November 16th. As previously mentioned before, she is also due to be re-flagged on Tuesday.

Galicia was handed over to Brittany Ferries crew this evening at 1800, her official reflagging will take place sometime tomorrow (Wednesday). Galicia is now scheduled to leave the dry dock on November 11th for her inspection by Spanish authorities on November 12th, she'll then head to Cherbourg for the first of her French flag inspections followed by 10 days of crew training, presumably her Le Havre call will be part of that training.

I haven't seen it confirmed anywhere but I can't believe there were no Brittany Ferries crew on board when she performed the various berth trials.

There were no Brittany Ferries crews, the delivery voyage and ramp trials were conducted by Northern Marine Ship Management Ltd.

Surprised at that Tony, but thanks for the clarification.

It's possible that Brittany Ferries crews will do ramp trials as part of the 10 days training, this training is also for the hotel services crews.

the other one is a vehicle carrier.

One of Lineas Suardiaz ships which used to ply their trade in the Thames Estuary to Sheerness quite frequently. Not seen much these days.
