It only deals with timber and dredged sand and gravel from off the Isle of Wight these days.

Could do Plymouth to Gib in 2 days if only for freight.
Depends on the quality of the freighter, these were very old.

I shipped a car out with one

Also I am still in contact with the owner

At the moment covid is the main problem, people with Gibraltar work contracts and correct ID are OK.

I believe La Linea is Spains worst covid city.

I crossed into Spain and back this morning transporting someone with a medical appointment in Spain.

Not sure about leisure but believe it is a no go.

Is Gib crossing seeing same problem with passport stamping for UK nationals with ES residence, as reported in other parts of Spain?
I know that some Brits prefer to live in La Linea (cheaper) and work in Gib. Has Gib crossing stopped accepting Gib ID cards?

At the moment other than covid restrictions the frontier is as normal.
No passport stamping, Gib and Spanish ID cards accepted.

My trip yesterday did not see us stop the car.

But this is often dependent on whether the Spanish officers got their leg over recently. ( This has always been the norm )

There are no and never have been checks on the Gib side for people exiting.

The people living in La Linea and all over the Campo whilst working in Gib are a multitude of nationalities.

Just read that Gib will tomorrow receive next batch of vaccine. Starting 2nd doses for those who had 1st dose 3 week ago.
Not like UK mainland 12 weeks gap nonsense.

The Royal Air Force (RAF) has delivered a further 8,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine to Gibraltar. The C-130 Hercules touched down just before 8pm on Saturday with the third consignment of the vaccine.

The Chief Minister said he would not tire of thanking the RAF, RAF Gibraltar, MOD Gibraltar, the Convent, the UK Foreign Secretary and all those who had made the delivery possible.

Fabian Picardo said: "Now Gibraltar can start to administer our second dose of the Pfizer vaccine

Hi missile looks like someone cares

what is believed to be Gibraltar’s first post-Brexit shipment of food to arrive directly in the Gibraltar port from the UK.

Journey takes about 6 days, based on Port of Gibraltar, Gibraltar to Port of Southampton , United Kingdom - Sea route & distance - ports.com .
Too expensive to run passenger service to UK.

The idea of direct shipment from UK to Gib appears to be gathering support.

However it may not be necessary to sail UK-Gib-UK but to make Gib a stop on other routes.

From my link above
"Other supermarkets are also looking at alternatives to the land route to ensure they can resume normal service with a full range of products in the coming weeks."

Also I can inform you that whatever reports there are about food shortages in Gib Morrisons are well stocked with Easter Eggs

British airline Eastern Airways has announced two new UK routes from Gibraltar, with the flights set to launch this May.

Flights from Southampton will commence on May 24 and from Birmingham from May 28.

Both routes will operate initially twice weekly on a Monday and Friday.

MEDICS in Gibraltar have now given Covid vaccines to nearly 40 per cent of residents - compared to just four per cent in neighbouring Spain,

I believe that now includes all the over 70's and frontline workers some of them Spanish residents having had the two jabs plus many others.

Over 800 Spanish (illegal) incursions in one year

Tuesday, February 9, 2021 - 11:02The Strategic Command of the Armed Forces of the United Kingdom recorded 37 overflights of the Spanish Air Force and 27 intrusions of Spanish Navy ships throughout the year. The remaining incursions were carried out by the Spanish Civil Guard or customs officers which are regarded as other agencies of the Spanish Government. That makes it a total of 830 incursions.
