The night boats may be effected if the afternoon sailing proceeding it have been delayed.
However they are the slowest crossings so can make up some time during the night.

And now the air traffic controllers are having their turn, but this ends on Friday.  It might affect the kit arriving in time for the practice day.  Plus the farmers are having blockages in the Pyrenees.  Painful  Shocked  Grin

Looks like the dock strike might be having an effect.
Tomorrows BF night boat to St Malo is cancelled.
I'm usually on that, but decided to use the Caen route instead. Positive.
Negative is that the Caen boats going to be rammed.

The Caen boat we are on Barry has been full for months now, they are not taking bookings.
