I am marking my return to the website by detailing a multi trip journey that Paul Cloke and I undertook almost a year ago between Portsmouth and Le Havre, Cherbourg and Portsmouth and Portsmouth-Caen-Portsmouth. Travelling with Brittany Ferries this report describes the three principle elements of there current fleet operations from Portsmouth, économie, high speed and cruise ferry.
I am just in the process of finalising plans to visit Portsmouth this coming weekend (3rd-4th June 2017) with my fianceé and some friends when I suddenly realised that I hadn’t posted the photographs from our last visit back in February when myself and Paul Cloke travelled on Brittany Ferries Pont-Aven to St Malo, returning on the Armorique from Caen, hence the title, ‘the ones that got away’.
Its been a while since I have posted any photographs to the website and that’s because it has been a while since I have wielded a camera. Even though I am now semi retired from the website due to some super big massive changes in my personal life, such as trying to find a new job, settling down with the girl I love and I am not sure if I have mentioned it on here, getting married! As you can see time hasn’t been in my favour of late but I wanted you to all know that I am still around and I do poke my head into the hobby side of my life occasionally. Anyway I digress…. Please find in this album a few photographs taken during October and November.
This posts consists of photographs taken during February 2016 and features a rough crossing to Calais during storm ‘Imogen’ and the new DFDS corporate livery which has been applied to the fleet during the winter overhauls

On Tuesday 14th July 2015 Paul Cloke and myself departed Kent for Portsmouth for a a short mini cruise with Brittany Ferries travelling out on the Bretagne to the Breton port of St Malo before returning the following day from the Norman port of Caen (Ouistreham) on the Mont St Michel.
