Visited Sandbanks yesterday in my way to the Poole Boat Show, couple of pictures attached of the Barfleur, MN Pelican and Condor Liberation. Nice place to watch the ferries at Sandbanks, and fairly lucky with Brambles Bush Bay being on the Purbrook side for both Barfleur and MN Pelican. Barfleur looks a lot better condition paintwise than Normandie, shows how the more extensive / longer Caen route has bigger impact.

Nice - shame I missed that!

I missed it too as well, I only found out via a Facebook story on it.  Been trying to find film footage of it.  I didn’t actually go to the show as it was too hot on the day and too crowded.  I would have gone if there were any warships about that were open.

if I can find any footage I’ll share it.

A local tip for you - the Bramble Bush Bay chain ferry is always on the south (Studland) side for the larger ships to pass, but can be on either side for the Condor.
