What exactly do cruise passengers do in Plymouth? I assume the bulk of them are bussed out to Looe, Salcome or Dartmoor.

Plenty of them stay and wander around Plymouth. In spite of the distance, lots go to the Eden Project too.

Mayflower steps probably too...

Another stormy week ahead...

Cap Finistere's sailings have also been affected (but the sailing updates page has the sailing legs listed the wrong way around at present... hopefully BF will correct soon!).

Ah good - two identical photos of MSM on the same page! 😎

I think you need to do something about the Normandie photo though Tony.  Looks far too nice a day for a bad-weather Sailings Updates photo.  None of those intimidating storm clouds like in the MSM one.  Maybe you could photoshop some in!  Or, even better, some big waves crashing right over the top of her! 😁

Hope BFE doesn’t run out of storage space..... 😉

Sorry, I don't believe in Photoshop, it's a cheats software.

Interesting.  Clearly something going on out there.  But if the problem is sea state due to the storm then it’s odd that she has spent the last half hour on a course that must be pretty much beam-on to that problematic sea.  Coming round into the wind now, but I’m wondering if the problem might be more to do with something going on in the harbour?

My son is on board and thinks the port of Plymouth was closed for a period?

Yes, fits with my theory.  Armorique’s behaviour was not consistent with unsuitable conditions for entry.  Something must have been going on in the harbour - there are three RFA vessels in the Sound; I wonder if one of them was having problems holding?
