CONDOR Ferries has announced that Commodore CIipper will be back in service earlier than planned following the completion of repair works in a dry dock in Falmouth.

She has been out of action since she scraped the seabed off Guernsey on July 14.

James Fulford, chief executive officer at Condor Ferries, said: ‘We are delighted that the repairs to Clipper have been completed ahead of schedule.

‘I’d like to thank our contractors, A&P Falmouth, and crew at the dry dock in Falmouth for all their hard work, which has meant that we have Clipper back in service earlier than we expected.

‘Clipper will return to work on August 22, initially providing a freight-only service to allow routine maintenance for Commodore Goodwill which had been postponed to ensure the best possible service for our islands during Clipper’s time in dry docks.

‘She will be back in her usual routine next Tuesday.’

While the repair works have been under way in the dry dock, Condor has taken the opportunity to carry out additional maintenance to the vessel.
