T23 (Raccordement) is a mixed bag for me. Great view up the start/finish straight and the action at the chicane, but you need to sit as high up as you can, especially if you want to take photos or video as otherwise the fencing ruins the view. And don't get me started on the seats there - the most uncomfortable and cramped seats I've ever sat in at Le Mans! But others swear by T23.
Essentially, what he said. T17 has long been my go to including as a non-sun "insurance policy". Have used T34 but suspect it might have been damp this year with the prevailing winds. 2023 overcrowding in T34 at start / finish looked to have been sorted this year. As a snapper, T23 and T34 are both worthy of consideration. Anything on start finish straight is compromised by fencing.

T23 seats have no backs and you can get very hot in hour or so each side of start as they are quite close and legroom is limited.

Did like T5 ? Goodyear as well spaced seats and seat backs - front row bad as had bars to stop you falling in eyesight line. Also decent keg room - basically looking over left turn if Dunlop chicane - moved higher when rain came and when returned at night so can see ovee barrier. Big screen a bit to left and need binoculars or zoom lens to read order clearly. Works well with Chappelle ACO area and Panarama parking

PS T 5 had no space at front for annoying larecomers or would be David Baileys to stand up en masse and block en masse and block view

I need to remember a seat cushion for next year. Those grandstand seats are UNCOMFORTABLE!

Agree on cushions as ordered a couple of yellow Grello ones - quite bright so hopefully won’t leave on seats

Cushions were popular with the German DTMers at Spa

I am planning to be there again - 42 years after my first visit. This year we had 36 people in our group - should be similar in 2025.

They do now (for Portsmouth - Caen anyway), but it seems a bit random on availability what with the new ship.

Legend! Much appreciated heads up. Yeah cabin availability is a bit strange but anyway that's the first thing ticked off.

Saw it, was thinking Pompey St Malo out and Chunnel return. As you say the cabin thing is a bit strange.

Same, but 8 am out on the 5th. The leaving day may yet change, depending on my circs nearer the time.

The way I read it, is that there are no 2berth cabins on William of Normandie?
Everything else seemed to be available.

I got a 2-berth 'Club' cabin going out but had to take a 4-berth coming back home.

Well, I've decided to stick with the chunnel both ways. I recall the absolute disaster getting off the boat in Portsmouth followed by a 2.5 hours drive. Mind you, the chunnel isn't brilliant, but at least I can get back in a day.
