Two Weeks To Go Until Condor's Back


8:26am 3rd July 2013

The countdown is on as Weymouth gets ready to welcome back it's close link to the Channel Islands.

There are two weeks to go until Condor Ferries start sailings again from Weymouth on the 17th of July.

The first voyages from Weymouth port to the Islands began in the 1850's when Great Western Railway began to offer trips in conjunction with the Weymouth & Channel Islands Steam Packet Company.

Condor Ferries began it's services in 1987.

Alicia Andrews, Sales and Marketing Director at Condor Ferries, told Wessex FM that, "Weymouth is the natural gateway to the Channel Islands as it offers the shortest crossing times, and we are proud to continue an historic tradition once services from Weymouth resume on the 17th. Over the past 26 years, Condor Ferries has been active in forging close ties between Weymouth and the Channel Islands, and our return later this month is a great way to further this relationship."

David de Carteret, Director of Tourism & Marketing at Jersey Tourism, added, "The summer holidays are the perfect time to visit Jersey, with some of the warmest weather in the British Isles and a host of great family attractions. We're looking forward to welcoming passengers travelling from Weymouth back to the island from July."
