Scillonian Returns To Pick Up Late Travellers

The Scillonian III

The Scillonian III

The Scillonian returned to St Mary’s on Sunday afternoon, half an hour into it’s sailing to the mainland.

Group Commercial Manager Nick Sanders says twelve Tresco guests missed the 3pm sailing from St Mary’s after their boat from Bryher picked them up too late to make the ferry sailing.

A message was relayed to the ship after it had departed. After consultation with Captain Redgrave and Nick Sanders, the decision was made to allow the boat to return to the harbour and allow the stranded passengers to board.

Nick says Bryher Boats has apologised for the mistake and that Dean Whillis of Tresco Estate has called him personally to thank the company.

He says it demonstrates the lengths that the Steamship Group go to, positively helping resolve matters.
