Wightlink Will Run Overnight FastCat Sailings Over Summer Weekends

Published: 15th May 2019 18:35

Wightlink will be running overnight FastCat services between Portsmouth Harbour and Ryde Pier Head on Friday night/early Saturday morning and Saturday night/early Sunday morning over the summer.

Both Islanders and visitors from the mainland will be able to enjoy a late night out on the other side of the Solent every weekend from Friday 31 May until the end of September.

The four round-trip sailings will complement Wightlink’s existing overnight car ferry services from Portsmouth so there will be a cross-Solent service for foot passengers available every hour on Friday and Saturday nights.

“Our customers often ask me if we can run later sailings for foot passengers,” explains Wightlink Chief Executive Keith Greenfield. “We have decided to trial four extra nightly FastCat round-trips on Friday and Saturday nights during summer weekends. If they prove popular with customers, we will give serious consideration to keeping them all year round. As we already run our car ferry from Portsmouth to Fishbourne through the night, foot passengers can now cross the Solent hourly using both services.”
