Convoy!

Anyone looking to convoy down to the ferry together should post here...

Who wants to meet up and journey together to Lille. We are going to travel the day before and spend the night in Lille ready for the start. We did this a few years back and a few of us met on the M20 services near Maidstone and went in convoy. It drew in a lot of attention and was great fun. It only takes about 45 mins from here to Dover. If anyone is interested let us know and we can sort out ferry times etc. I am thinking of going to Dunkirk to avoid the camps in Calais etc.

Team Wrong Direction sailing out of Dover to Dunkirk midday on the Thursday.

Will be there bruv. Hopefully get a few more teams to meet up as well,as you said it was good fun last time driving to Dover and on to Lille with a little convoy.

Calypso

Hi Team Wrong Direction. That's do-able. Just need to make sure our car passes the m.o.t first before we book. Where are you coming from? Team Calypso.

Thurrock, Essex - not too far away. Yet to acquire our vehicle. Leaving as late as possible to give more choice for MOT'd cars.

Calypso

We're from Kent. Just across the water. Meeting up would be good. Do you know the services on the M20 near Maidstone? Our car is booked in for its MOT on Saturday so fingers crossed it won't cost too much. Let me know when you are ready to book the Ferry so we can book the same one. My brother will be joining us too in his car so that's 3 in convoy if your up for it.

We're hoping for a lunchtime crossing.
Happy to meet up for convoy.

Calypso

I am thinking maybe we should meet at the Maidstone services between 11 and 12. Then head down to Dover for the 1 o'clock ferry. How does that sound to everyone?

Wondering Arms

Sounds good to me

You know you've...

We are in!!

Calypso

Great, looks like we got ourselves a convoy

Hi all,

Our team is booked onto the 12pm Ferry from Dover to Dunkirk on 07/07/2016. Anybody else??

Calypso

That's probably a bit too early for us and we may look a bit stupid all dressed up wondering around Lille.

Calypso

We've booked the 12:00 ferry also to Dunkirk. The next Ferry is not until 2pm and more expensive. We have to be at the ferry 45 mins before. Let me know if anyone wants to meet before hand.

You know you've...

We are booked in the 12 o'clock ferry as well!!

Someone said meet at the maidstone services (Junction 8 southbound on the M20), so I propose meeting there still between 9:30 and 10:30. If we set off at 10:30 that should give us enough time to get to the Ferry Terminal

Calypso

Good for us

Wondering Arms

We're booked 12:00 Dover Dunkirk DFDS seaways.
If we don't make the M20 meeting we'll see you at the ferry

Confirmation that we (Team Wrong Direction) are on DFDS 12.00 Dover to Dunkirk Thursday 7th July.
Happy to meet at Maidstone Services around 9.30.

Calypso

Hi all. Is everyone travelling over in costume. We have decided all in besides we would look stupid without costumes now.

Wondering Arms

We're not dressing up until Friday morning, We shall appear normal for the drive down to Lille,
Hoping to leave Lincoln around 5am to get to the meet up and join the convoy.

I've kicked off a FB group chat for those crossing Dover Dunkirk midday on the Thursdayear and wanting to meet this side of the water.
