  1. Sympathy from the public will probably be nil if holidays booked after a torrid 2020.
  2. I see sailings available to book until January 2022. A number of years ago I suggested to Wightlink a xx00. xx40. xx20 xx00. Time table for the car ferry and was told xx00 xx30 xx00 xx00 was what people wanted. I see this year they have finally succumbed yo the sensible 40 minute frequency which makes it more robust with a bit lf leeway if 1 vessel runs a little late it foesnt impact all.
  3. Oh well, at least Faith had a few days to blow away cobwebs. Now down to just 1 vessel being used so rest time again.
  4. Isle of Wight going to tier 3 boxing day and Hampshire Tier 4. New Forest has a reprieve though which is a bit daft as its like leaving a honey pot by a beehive. Have they not worked out human behaviour yet?
  5. I see the timetable has been reduced to just the 2 vessels in the lead up to Christmas.
  6. They keep saying most infections in age groups of people who are at school, college and university. Then they show graphics showing how overtime this spreads to the middle age groups and then to the elderly. Therefore to shorten this virus pandemic, cut the spread, is the logical answer vacinate the ones where most infections are being transmitted from. 11-21 year olds. Treat the root cause so it can't spread upwards. With the limit to 1 day at Christmas you can see the which family shall we have round argument resurfacing at this late stage. It should have been 2 days allowed. As
  7. You do have to wonder if its worth them even bothering between now and Christmas to waste manpower on fixing them. St Clare was not very busy today at 12pm Gunwharf quiet and thats before tier 3 kicks in. Not sure I get why restaurants in tier 2 can serve food seated but when tier 3 that suddenly not allowed yet same covid safety protocols in force. Shops allowed to remain open but most have little covid structure yet restaurants do. Don't get the justification for that particular change. Why is next Thursday any more risky than this if following same protocols.
  8. Trains were due back Monday but failed again and now no power supply so buses all day. Maybe they won't make it back before the line closes for 3 months. St Clare Just put those ladt words in so its topical to the title 😅
  9. Isle of Wight heritage railway should take 1 as 8ts older than most theirs. Think transport museum London may be sfter one.
  10. Just touching on the trains: Rail magazine showed a picture of St Clare at Fishbourne, but the usual non checking of facts as they said arrived at Yarmouth. Also all the trains are now broken and its buses until at least 13th.
  11. Perhaps get the money back from shipyard, build the bridge, cheaper in long run. Have a passenger ferry.

    But on 21st/22nd relatives staying over Christmas not supposed to travel if they are staying with replies as only 5 day rule. Should Wightlink/Red funnel take bookings for more than 5 days from 23rd? Not really their job but could question people and remind them of the rules.

    That was put up some time ago probably even before first round of tiers came in. Now with most people in tier 2 or 3 and you can't get together until 23rd, then maybe she will get a run out 23rd, 24th and 27th.

  15. Fastcats unable to cope with December day trippers following England tier announcements, larger vessels required for IOW!!! 😉
