A bit of advice if you’re traveling to the Channel Islands, give yourself some wiggle room. The ferries have a habit of frequent cancellation. Such was the case when I lost a day in Guernsey to just such a curtailment of service, proving once again, the necessity of maintaining flexibility in your travels. Also, always have a back-up plan. It turns out that Condor Ferries purchased vessels that were not entirely up to the task of dealing with rough seas.
