With predicted wind speeds of 50 miles per hour and wave heights of up 4.5 metres which are outside of safe operating limits, the company has cancelled services between Poole, Guernsey and Jersey on Friday, 12 October and Saturday 13 October.
Clipper is now to operate from St Malo to Jersey, Guernsey on Friday and north to Poole overnight, and she will follow the reverse pattern on Saturday south to the Islands and on to St Malo.
As a consequence of these changes, the rescheduling of Clipper requires the cancellation of Friday evening and Saturday morning’s round trips from St Malo to Jersey.
Condor’s customer contact centre and port teams are notifying all passengers affected tooffer the alternative sailings where space is available and to help rearrange their travel plans. All are being offered free transfers or a full refund.
Condor’s conventional ferry services are also affected by the approaching storm as the Commodore Goodwill is being re-routed on Friday so will operate Portsmouth to Jersey first and then onto Guernsey.
Further information will be released when available.
