    I can't find anything about ports on Google Jim.

    Bound to be some disruption I guess but I hope it isn't too bad.

    From Brittany ferries site

    General strike in Spain 29th March 2012

    Information currently available suggests that there will be no disruption to driver accompanied traffic arriving in or departing Santander on Thursday 29th March. Regrettably, the strike action will mean that Brittany Ferries will not be able to accept unaccompanied items for shipment on the Portsmouth/Santander sailing on 28th March or on the Santander/Plymouth sailing on 29th March 2012.

    This site will be updated with any new information as and when it becomes available.

    Me and old mo are on the Pont Aven tomorrow. We are presently near Salamanca. We were going to leave here about now but it's too nice to travel so were off into town again and will make a dash for the port tomorrow morning.
