Just heard from pierre on another matter:
They are about to go live with an English translation of their website and will have an English speaking person on AFIS. which should take out some of the stress for non-francophones.
He has also mentioned that there will be parachuting that weekend and therefore NO OVERHEAD JOINS , instead integrate on the downwind leg.
(See sia site above for circuit directions etc.)
Still not sure about this one: if all goes will the Latina mob should be in St Malo on the Friday night, and its a long weekend.
