(27 September 2019) Wightlink is finalising its 2020 timetables*. New this summer will be more sailings at weekends between Lymington and Yarmouth. On average, there will be an extra 16 round-trips every weekend on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays from April to the end of August when three ferries will be in operation. There will also be additional sailings on busy days such as the Thursday before Isle of Wight Festival.
“We are delighted to provide extra sailings this summer between Lymington and Yarmouth to meet increasing demand from Islanders and holidaymakers,” says Wightlink Chief Executive Keith Greenfield. “Next summer, there will be more than 300 extra round-trip crossings carrying another 45,000 vehicles on this scenic route.”
Following a three month summer trial, Wightlink has decided to cease its weekend overnight sailings on the FastCats between Portsmouth Harbour and Ryde Pier Head because fewer people than expected wanted to travel at that time. Wightlink’s overnight car ferries will continue to depart Portsmouth at 00:00, 03:00 and 05:00 and Fishbourne at 01:00, 04:00 and 06:00.
*Portsmouth-Fishbourne car ferry and Portsmouth Harbour-Ryde Pier Head FastCat services are now available online to book. The Lymington-Yarmouth timetable is being finalised and will be available shortly.
