The high-speed crossings concerned are between St Malo, Jersey, Guernsey and Poole fromtomorrow Wednesday 08 to Sunday 12 September.
Passengers are transferred at modified times on the same day as their initial departure to avoid us canceling services. If they are happy with the time changes, they don’t need to contact us.
