Duo - Ferry Arrangements/Choices

Post  Sarah on Tue Aug 16, 2011 3:45 pm

Hi Guys

I've now had a chance to price up the ferries. As there were numerous combinations it has taken me all evening so please make sure you respond to me asap so I can get things sorted.

On the basis that Graham wants to take his car and 11 people are going the costing is based on taking the ferry across with 1 van, 2 cars and 1 motorbike/foot passenger together with my estimate on fuel:

- Everyone on Brittany ferries sailing out to Caen and returning via Cherbourg - £121

- Everyone on LD Lines via Le Havre - £68

- The van & 3 adults on Brittany and the rest via LD Lines - £87

There are obviously other calculations can be made if more people want to go by Brittany but I will need your feedback on this to make final calculations

Obviously to keep the calculation simple the cost of the last option is divided between all of us. Consideration can be given as to what contribution is made towards the cost of the van/those wanting to go over via Brittany.

There is a possible solution for everyone to go via LD Lines. When I was looking through options although the cabins are all full there are still 3 sleeper seats left and cost £24 each.

The sleeper seat "turns into a bed and are set in a private lounge and recline to the full to turn into 2.10 meters' long horizontal beds. These twin seats are equipped with leg rests and partition so that you can enjoy the comfort and privacy of your own space in an environment combining innovation, well-being and aesthetics."

Tel would a sleeper seat be an option?


I please need to know from you all how you wish to get across to France. Your options are:

I want to go Brittany as I want a cabin
I want to go LD Lines but only if I can have a sleeper seat
I want to go LD Lines. A sleeper seat would be nice but not essential
I want to go LD Lines and don't want a sleeper seat

Please get back to me preferably tomorrow, either on the forum, text or email.

Thanks

Ok I've booked the van LD Lines and booked the sleeper seats for Tel, Syd and Tim.

There are no more sleeper seats left.

I wish to get the other cars booked asap. Can you please get back to me asap what you want to do.

Although there are no sleeper seats left there are seats available in club class currently £5.50 each. Description of the club class seats are:

"In length and breadth, the centimeters that make all the difference. Stretch out and relax, abandon yourself to the ultimate in well-being. Larger and more generously spaced than the standard chairs, the Club armchairs live up to their promise of exceptional comfort within small lounges."

Let me know if you'd prefer to try and sleep on one of these or whether you'd prefer a sleeping bag on the floor.

Thanks

My answer would have been if I had not been at work til 8.40pm
I want to go LD Lines but only is a sleeper seat was available.
Crying or Very sad
How much would Tel, Tim or Syd be prepared to sell one to me?
Laughing
Presume Brittany is now out of the equation and I am finding double the price hard to swallow.
So I guess I will go for the most comfortable seat I can get - club seat - and try to get sleeper seat when we get there in case of cancellations.
Otherwise...I have Tramadol! drunken bom Sleep
Thanks Sarah!
I love you

Duo entered and I have a BCFM Surprised
Dad and I had a giggle at google's literal translation of the guidance notes re prep for the race herewith! ;

To present 30 years DUO NORMAND, simply refer to that said in 1982 in the editorial program, the first edition Jacky Hardy who was one of the best specialists of Normandy against the clock , a pupil at the school sottevillaise the "master" Andrée Boucher, the former coach Jacques Anquetil:
"It seemed interesting to us just days before the start of this test, give you some basic tips to better prepare it must first be emphasized that to succeed a good race, you must be voluntary and get ready to do violence to times of the season when the spirits are willing to put on hold. However, do not listen too, a rational preparation allows you to find a good feeling and confidence, especially if it is shared, without which success is prohibited. Preparing for two poses a few problems. There are against the clock in teams of four which is even more complex. The extent of your availability, a fortnight should be enough for you to become a consistent and determined duo.
52 km! it's long and short at once. It should be in the shape of the first kilometers. This will be one of the highlights of your preparation, the fast start (it's simple, you train to leave quickly, without thinking!), The "D" day and after a good warm-up, you'll be able to put your gear quickly without compromising performance for the remainder of the race. Should we train on a greater distance. Not necessarily. Above all, find the rhythm and good coordination with the crew. The relays will be short and supported. Everyone should take account of the partner. Do not "kill" his companion who can know such a difficult but not hopeless. Do not try to be the best of both, but the best team of all. If you wish to extend your cranks to shorten your " chrono "will put your levers as the day before the competition, you will avoid the troubles muscle. Do not overload on food. Calorie meal took 3 to 4 hours before is more than enough. Only the most "soifards" of a can take you. That's it. And if you can, study the course and why not a repetition of the test three days before. Good luck. "

All these lines, remember that one: "Do not try to be the best of both, but the best team of all"

Since October 3, 1982, nothing has changed: it is still relevant!


Now l'm gonna get back on my bike! bounce affraid
