Is The FastCat About To Return To Service?

Wightlink's FastCat has been spotted out in the Solent today (Monday).

It's understood the vessel is carrying out sea trials ahead of return.

The service has been suspended since March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Wightlink has reintroduced its Yarmouth-Lymington route, along with an increased number of sailings between Portsmouth and Fishbourne as COVID-19 restrictions ease.

A petition calling for the return of the FastCat service has gathered more than 2,000 signatures.

Isle of Wight Radio has asked Wightlink for a comment.
