I did hear a rumour that BF was planning on replacing its replacement for the triangular rolls with banana bread.  But then they realised they didn’t have enough geast.

Banana bread rolls now?????????????...oh no this could go pear shaped!!

With the combination of strike action and weather it appears the only BF sailings France-UK tomorrow 12th Dec are from Caen.

Cherbourg has succumbed to the weather and St Malo and Le Havre are on strike. There was no scheduled sailing from Roscoff.

Good question.... Impossible to predict in the current situation. If, today or tomorrow, CGT and CFDT call for extended strike action, it could well result in an indefinite blockage of several ports, including St Malo.

Sorry not to reassure, but a very volatile situation.

And I have heard that Monday might well see a road hauliers' strike with blockades of fuel depots, roundabouts and motorways. As Colin says, nothing is yet clear so we'll have to wait and see. I'll update the dedicated strike thread if I have more news. Ed.

Yes, a very vulnerable route in winter storms.

'Winter' seems to cover September - April inclusive down in Plymouth these days Gareth. I have lost sympathy for anyone living on the East Coast moaning about the weather:/ We seen to have a wet and windy fronts coming in daily for the majority of the year over here!

How far ahead are these strikes decided? Off to St Malo on Monday, weather forecast looks ok now, but hoping strikes don't get in the way.

We'll be on the same boat (or not).  You'll recognise me by the long flowing white beard, though after driving down from the far north through most of England it may be a touch blue by the time I arrive at Portsmouth.  The reindeer will be in the car deck, chewing tyres and knocking off wing mirrors.  Ho, Ho, Ho!

Looks almost certain that St Malo port will be strike bound on Tuesday 17th. National strike called in ports.
