Condor Rapide’s return to service from dry dock has been delayed.

The vessel was due to be back in action today, but due to what the company have described as an "engine management software issue", its return will be put on hold.

The fault was discovered on en route to St Malo from Falmouth this morning.

Engineers and contractors are currently working to rectify the problem.

We apologise for the inconvenience this is causing and are hopeful Rapide will resume her scheduled sailings later today so passengers can complete their travel during the half term holiday.

We continue to plan to operate a delayed schedule today and further information will be issued as soon as it becomes available.’

The affected services are this afternoon’s departure from St Malo at 15:50, arriving in Jersey at 16:10, and the return leaving St Helier at 17:00, arriving in St Malo at 19:20.
