Scillonian Sunday Sailings To Be Bookable At End Of January

scillonian gangwayThe Isles of Scilly Steamship Company say they intend to start taking bookings for their new Scillonian III Sunday sailing dates by the end of this month.

Commercial manager, Nick Sanders, told Radio Scilly that the company will start Sunday sailings on the 7th July and will run around ten of these through the busy summer season.

This follows criticism on Facebook from some islands’ residents who say that Sunday sailings are not currently advertised on the company’s website and that telephone booking operators seem unaware of the plans.

Nick says there are still some operational arrangements that need to be put in place to allow 7-days-a-week sailing, which have delayed making the dates available, but he’s hopeful that those will be completed shortly.

The Sunday operation of the boat was announced by chief executive Jeff Marston during last month’s Council Transport Committee, where the company outlined it’s investment strategy and plans to fill the gap left by the pullout of helicopter operator, BIH.
