Condor boosts summer sails to Guernsey


Condor have added more sailings between Jersey and Guernsey to their summer schedule to allow day-tripping islanders the chance to see high-profile sporting events in both islands.

Islanders and visitors will be able to attend fixtures in both islands including the Muratti Vase Final and the Junior Siam Cup thanks to specially timed sailings from Condor.

Aside from the sporting events, it’s hoped that the additions to the schedule will appeal to those who want to explore either island for the day.

The trips between the two biggest Channel Islands started on 22 April and will run through until the end of September.

Condor CEO Paul Luxon said: “We are aware that there is a small, day excursion market between Guernsey and Jersey so… scheduling these in advance offers visitors to our shores and islanders the opportunity to plan ahead.

"We hope these will prove popular and become a sustainable part of our timetable.”

The trips will offer between six and eleven hours ashore in either island and some departures are timed specifically to coincide with large sporting events taking place in Jersey and Guernsey this summer.
