Isn’t it funny how red funnel and Wight link cancel sailings over non peak times to save running uneconomical sailings , and I wonder how many people they have brought to the island unnecessarily during the lock down . Because local to me the holiday homes have guests or there owners in , There normally empty this time of year.

There are still second home owner’s coming and some holiday lets have people in them.When you look at countries around the world, those that are islands have had strict border controls, therefore have managed to control this virus. You don’t have to be a epidemiologist to know that people travelling around during a pandemic is foolish.

What rubbish! They have extremely effective radar for use in these conditions. More likely another excuse for RF cost cutting. We must support the shake up of cross-Solent travel proposed by our MP and Council leader.

Radar didn’t help when they hit a yacht in fog a few years ago.
Perhaps go look into the rules with fog to find out why they can’t run.

Here here Plato. Fixed link is a must. Keep the ferries and let them compete by all means. At least we would have choice.

Too many here now. Fog is a blessing, keeping more away.

Yes. You need a fixed link now over there on the Island. Hopefully, this latest covid crisis will accelerate things. Message for Steve. If there is easier access to the Island, there will be better support for the ssen staff in the event of a major power cut.
