Check with Transmanche

Recommended Posts

If you have a booking with Transmanche, Newhaven/Dieppe, you may wish to phone and check the sailing status before travelling. Last week, arriving for 7.30 am crossing, there was a 3.5 hour delay followed up with a 6-hour crossing.

Main reason for potential disruption is that their 2-fleet operation is currently down to 1, with the larger boat being laid up after colliding with the harbour wall at Dieppe. The remaining boat is endeavoring to make all the scheduled crossings. My own long crossing came as a result of engine problems midstream.

In fairness to them, they'd nailed the problem by the time I returned and all ws on time, but it doesn't leave much room for manoeuvre when things go awry.
