Hi All, when at Millbay Dock yesterday noticed that a former un-surfaced area-to the right as you head for the check in lanes- has now been given a tarmac surface and is signed as a parking area with what appear to be spaces for cars and towing outfits.

I presume that many travelling will time their arrival such that they go straight into the check in lanes but it may be of use to others who choose to arrive earlier and, particularly, those affected by the route changes meaning that they may now be departing from Plymouth as opposed to Portsmouth and cant be so precise in arrival times.

BF allow you to park in the lanes once the current sailing has departed.but this is another option.

Helpful Allan, but sadly irrelevant this weekend as once again there is an acute shortage of ships in Plymouth. Pont Aven has broken down again - something wrong with the steering I am told,  so has gone back to the garage in Brest for repairs (a week they say) and Armorique has been dispatched to Cork to look after our Irish friends. Hey ho !

Hi Euro, well let’s hope no poor souls end up there for far longer than they intended!

Been out all day so will need to catch up with things BF and now feeling a teeny weeny bit nervous as booked on Pont Aven in early June.
