CONDOR has scheduled a regular Commodore Clipper sailing this summer between the Islands and Portsmouth on Sundays for the first time.

The new service started last weekend and operates every Sunday through to 10 September, accommodating an additional 500 passengers and up to 100 cars each week.

Justin Amey, Condor’s Head of Marketing, said the company had received many requests for an increase in weekend services and hoped the Sunday sailing would prove positive for tourism and create more travel opportunities for islanders. 

‘We’ve seen demand for a seasonal service so this extra crossing means visitors can now spend the whole weekend in Guernsey or Jersey at the end of their holiday and islanders are also able to travel overnight to the UK for their trip away.’

The timetable sees Commodore Clipper operate her usual Monday to Saturday timings, departing Guernsey on Sunday at 17:20 and arriving in Jersey at 19:20. She then leaves St Helier at 21:20 and travels overnight, reaching Portsmouth at 06:30 on Monday morning.
