Charter vessel for Wightlink crossings

By a County Press reporter

Monday, February 10, 2014


CHARTER vessels will be used for some Wightlink sailings tomorrow (Tuesday).

The company said Wight Ryders would leave Portsmouth at 15 minutes past the hour from 05:15 to 22:15 and from Ryde 47 minutes past the hour from 05:47 until 22:47.

It said the charter vessel Wight Scene would be used in the morning, due to the forecast for bad weather, and in the afternoon it would revert to the Solent Cat charter vessel.

The charter vessels will operate the following sailings:

• From Ryde: 07:10, 09:10, 17:10 and 18:10

• From Portsmouth Harbour: 07:50, 16:40, 17:40 and 18:45


Wight Scene crossings will take 40 minutes and Solent Cat 25 minutes.

Errm, carl.

The IW anti-everything reactionary mindset is ingrained and getting worse.

I guess the use of the word **** can offend. So what I should have said we don’t have a tunnel because of the backwards looking view of the past and current decision makers on the island. This I feel is a situation that won’t exist for too much longer and then the problems with ferries and bad weather will be gone.

Hopefully the weather won't be to bad tomorrow?
