Galicia is out and about, heading for Qingdao, about 200 miles down the coast from Weihei. Presumably its on sea trials, or possibly to bunker for her delivery voyage?

Well she was handed over to her owners which means sea trials are complete .

Looking forward to getting down to Rosslare to get a few pics of Cap Finistere. I wonder will she become a regular visitor?

Plenty of rumours that it is the intended replacement for the Connemara on a permanent basis after the new E-Flexers arrive and the existing fleet is redeployed.

I see Santander in the schedule now , is that just for the freight only schedule .

Would be delighted if that happened. I've been thinking about a trip down to Spain but tbh I;m not sure my better half would approve of travelling 30 hours on one of the visentinis  ;D The Cap would be a much easier sell!

Looks like Etretat has returned to service for BF, currently on the way to Portsmouth from Le Harve, first sailing since March !

Article here from a French newspaper that BF are considering opening a Ireland to Le Harve route!

"We are in discussions with the commercial services of the Grand Maritime Port of Le Havre", confirmed Jean-Marc Rou?. Asked about the possibilities of development towards Ireland during his recent passage through the ocean city, the president of Brittany Ferries explained that the company planed on the hypothesis of the creation of a second line from Le Havre, already connected to Portsmouth, England. This time around it would be to turn "presumably to Rosslare" during 2021. All with "one ship affected, so probably more than one rotation" per week.

The Rosslare to Cherbourg route brought forward 2 months and will start on Monday 18th with Cap Finistere sailing from Rosslare at 8pm.
