9:18am 25th July 2013

You certainly seem pleased to have Condor back in Weymouth.

More than 2,500 people stepped on board the Condor Vitesse for a free family fun day on Tuesday.

As well as touring the bridge and meeting the Captain 250 people made bookings to travel on the fast ferry on the day.

Justin Amey, Marketing Manager at Condor Ferries, said: "We were delighted to welcome so many visitors on board, it really demonstrates how popular Condor Ferries is in Weymouth, and how many people are excited about trips to the Channel Islands and France.  

"The visits to the engine room and bridge proved especially popular with families wanting a behind-the-scenes look at the fast ferry, as well as the customised picture board which the younger guests particularly enjoyed!  We look forward to welcoming back many local residents, as they travel with us in the coming weeks and months"
