THE 'CHEF' has a look around the Food Court. We had a very nice talk. He said he would not forget me. I will not either. I learnt from him that the Captain of 'Pride of Burgundy' on that crossing would be the captain of the 'SPIRIT OF BRITAIN'
I don't know really. Just spoke to him for a minute or two. He didn't say who he cooks for. He's a very nice chap, like many others among the 'Pride of Burgundy' crew. I really hope this ship will stay on the Channel for a long time because I have plenty of good memories on her, and still gather some! But I know, they cannot stay for ever.
Hello Jean-Marie. It looks like Steve, can't remember his surname, though if I heard it..... I did eleven and a half years on the Burgundy, Second Mate to acting Master. I too have fond memories, as she was my last ship before retirement. A very nice ship with nice people, though with the two new one about to come on stream, and the she being the eldest of the conversions, ( converted during build), who knows what her fate will be. I think the Captain would have been David Miller, a very able, Master. with whom I also had the pleasure of sailing with for several years whilst on the Burgundy.
Nice to see Steve is still there.
