The "Pont Aven" berthed at the CIBB Shipyard in Brest again on May 18 at 8.30 a.m. after encountering a hydraulic problem with one of Pthe two steering gear systems during manoeuvres in the morning of May 17 in the port of Roscoff, following her overnight crossing from Plymouth which departed on the evening of May 16. In Roscoff all passengers disembarked safely and on schedule. As a consequence of reduced steering capacity in one of two steering systems the ferry was not able to complete her rotation from Roscoff to Cork and will be available for scheduled services between the UK and Spain only next week. The "Pont-Aven"’s engineers were alerted to low oil pressure in the starboard steering gear. An oil leak was identified which caused the pressure loss and a reduction in steering capacity. After in-depth investigationss the "Pont-Aven" sailed under her own steam to Brest for repairs to the affected steering system The previous engine problem, which reduced the ship’s speed from 24 knots to 20 knots, was unrelated to the current steering gear issue. The Brittany Ferries’ vessel "Armorique" was be reassigned to the Roscoff-Cork route during the weekend.
