Pont-Aven is on her way to Spain! Things are slowly starting to feel a little more normal...

Can anyone please confirm whether Barfleur really is returning to service on the Poole -Cherbourg route in September as the timetable says - or is that a part of the time table which is still awaiting amendment? Thanks for clarification.

We won't know for sure until she diverts to Brest sometime early tomorrow morning. Ed

That's the intention that's been publicised - so what you're seeing is correct as far as things stand now.

It also unfair to post against a person on this forum who has given his services for what is an unenviable task. It shows his fairness that the post has been allowed to stand

Yes I agree.  I was wrong to cast any aspersions.  I apologise to the moderators.

Well, chaps (and chapesses) we are in theory booked out Portsmouth - Ouistreham tomorrow night (01 July) on the good ship MSM.

We have the huge advantage of a Commodore cabin so we can hide away only to be seen when we re-appear at the other end. There will be a full report about our jolly japes in due course. Watch this space.

We look forward to seeing you contorting yourself into weird and wonderful positions during your yoga session. Ed

Out of interest Andy, what sort of passenger numbers was she carrying?

For those of us eager and excited to begin travelling to Spain once again a word of caution. There will be 16 radar vans and traffic drones in operation around Santander monitoring the volumes of travellers and their speed. Let's take it easy out there.

Not a great incentive to stop people down the road from us walking 500 yards up the road to a pub outside the Leicester lockdown area

You are allowed to walk 500 yards for exercise, during your exercise you are allowed to stop and take refreshment !

Looking for loopholes not to comply with the guidance isn't a solution to dealing with this killer virus

No suggestion was made by either of us that this was the case.

Boris's Dad has not found a loophole he has found a dirty great tunnel. It's a wonder he was not just checking his eyesight to see if it was safe for future trips

Well here we are all, after an uneventful crossing from Portsmouth on the MSM. Loading was a little slow with some mysterious colour coding in evidence, and we were 30 minutes late off the quay, but otherwise quite normal. We actually saw very little on board as we were parked on the starboard Deck 6 ramp and it was a quick up the stairs to Commodore 9003 and hunker down for the night. But we had all the usual facilities, including the in-cabin breakfast. The self-service was operating time slots by deck, and the same for off-loading. We weren't ejected from our cabin until the very last minute and the MSM was on the turn. Nothing unusual at passport control, no paperwork asked for other than passports.

Thanks for that VOB..interesting and useful information and appreciated..Didnt sound too bad. I take it people were still allowed on deck if they wanted to or have a wander round the ship without direct restrictions?

So those in Commodore cabins got the pick of the dishes on offer and those down in steerage had any scraps left over, did they? Ed
