Is the Conamera doing an extra Roscoff run?

Connemara doing two runs this weekend (Cork-Roscoff). We were due on Pont Aven on Friday and offer first trip home (1800 Saturday arr. 0600 Sunday). Took a refund and travel Irish Ferries on the boat we vowed never to travel after IF's abandonment of Rosslare.

Looks like squeezing in 3 back to back returns to make up for the lost Pont Aven and itís own sailing to Santander (guessing they give customers this option)

Todayís sailing due to land at 2am and if they are to hit the 10pm Monday night Ex Cork would need to leave by 6am

We were due on Cork-Roscoff on 8 June and were offered Connemara either 2230 on 7/6 or 0830 on 9/6. Neither suited and we were lucky to get on W B Yeats on 10/6. This is our second cancellation with Brittany in as many weeks.

Brittany Ferries announced a one charter of a vissenti ship from Stena ro/ro the vessel is believed to be the AF Michela the former Stena Egeria. The charter is from November 2019 to November 2020 and is to provide cover for Pont Aven which will be out of service for 10 weeks due to an engine replacement  and "in case FSG do not deliver the Honfleur on time.

FSG won't be delivering Honfleur on time as that time has come and gone already!  So far as I am aware they have not yet announced a revised delivery date as of yet.  The Brittany Ferries press release doesn't exactly inspire confidence mind.  All of this means Cork - Spain has got at least 6 months extension from the initial 2-year trial.

Connemara will be replaced by AF Michela and move to the French flag to provide additional redundancy on the core UK to France and Spain routes.

Honfleur appears to be suffering the same delays that WB Yeats suffered.
