WIGHTLINK TO SUSPEND WEEKEND SAILINGS ON YARMOUTH-LYMINGTON ROUTE

Wightlink is suspending its weekend sailings on the Yarmouth-Lymington route from Saturday (16th January 2021), it has been announced.

The Government’s latest travel restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic mean very few people are using this route on Saturdays and Sundays, as only essential travel is now allowed.

Weekday sailings will continue on the same timetable and will be kept under review, which could mean further reductions in the coming weeks.

Wightlink’s Portsmouth-Fishbourne route continues to operate 7 days a week with sailings every 2 hours. The Fastcat catamaran service between Ryde Pier Head and Portsmouth has already been suspended until further notice.

He has cut the ferry’s time tables.
Cut the fast cats.
Trying to cut staff salaries and pensions.
Trying to cut terms and conditions on staff contracts.

Maybe soon Keith you will cut yourself out of a job?

Wightlink should not be allowed to hold people in West Wight to ransom by threats to shut this already limited service. I am a registered nurse and need to get to work but not via a 70 mile journey if I had to go to Portsmouth, that will involve using 3 different forms of public transport thus an increased risk of virus transmission. Mr Seeley do stand up and do your job and support us its not good enough just to stand outside your door clapping.
