Storm Callum: Condor cancels all high-speed crossings
CONDOR has cancelled high speed sailings on Friday and Saturday as Storm Callum is due to bring severe weather to the English Channel.
With predicted wind speeds of 50 mph and wave heights of up 4.5 metres which are outside of safe operating limits, the company has cancelled fast-ferry services between Poole, Guernsey and Jersey.
The Commodore Clipper conventional ferry has been rescheduled to re-accommodate disrupted passengers.
The Clipper is now to operate from St Malo to Jersey and Guernsey on Friday and north to Poole overnight, and it 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 to offer 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.
