Passenger died during crossing to Roscoff
A 26-year-old man from Ireland died on July 2 aboard the "Pont-Aven" during a crossing between Cork and Roscoff between 8 and 9 p.m. of a cardiac arrest. The young man had embarked at 4 p.m. in Cork. The ship's nurse, in conjunction with the Toulouse-based Maritime Medical Consultation Center, failed to resuscitate him. The condition of the young man, disabled and a priori under respiratory assistance, was not considered incompatible with a trans-Channel crossing.
Two medevacs from Brittany ferry
Two passengers on board the "Pont Aven" had to be airlifted off for medical reasons. Both had fallen ill in separate incidents and needed medical attention on June 20, 2019. The ferry had just returned to its service a few days ago.
Repairs in Brest completed
The "Pont Aven" finally left Brest after completion of repairs on June 14 at 10.30 a.m, bound to Roscoff, ETA 5 p.m. The scheduled traffic to Cork was expected to be resumed at 8.30 p.m. The ship had been under repair since May 17 because of a problem on the hydraulic circuit of the rudder. Already from April 30 to May 14 the ship had been out of service after the fire on one of the four engines. Since early May, she had sailed for only three days.Upload News
