Dorset-based ferry operator Condor Ferries has announced that it will return to operating regular sailings from Weymouth next summer, subject to works being completed on the harbour wall.
As part of Condor Ferries’ 2013 sailing schedule, regular fast ferry services from Weymouth to the Channel Islands and on to St Malo in France, will return from 17 July 2013.
Capt Fran Collins, Operations Director at Condor Ferries, said: “We continue to liaise closely with Weymouth and Portland Borough Council regarding the planned works to the harbour wall, and are pleased to confirm that we will be returning to operating regular sailings from Weymouth next summer, subject to the works being completed.
“As in previous years, we will operate sailings from both Poole and Weymouth next summer, offering passengers the opportunity to select their preferred departure port.
“We know that many of our customers like to book their travel in advance, so our 2013 schedules will be available later this week, with passengers able to book sailings up to November 2013.”
Re-affirming Condor’s commitment to Weymouth, Capt Collins, added: “It has always remained our intention to return to operating regular sailings from Weymouth, once the works to restore the ferry port have been completed. We, along with the Council, recognise that Weymouth is the gateway to the Channel Islands, and the significant opportunities that the connection represents for the town.”
Condor’s regular fast ferry services from the UK to the Channel Islands and France will continue to operate from Poole until next July.
