WIGHTLINK will trial overnight FastCat sailings over the summer weekends.

The sailings will run between Ryde and Portsmouth on Fridays and Saturdays, from Friday, May 31, until the end of September.

It will mean there is a cross-Solent service for foot passengers available throughout the night.

"Our customers often ask me if we can run later sailings," said Wightlink chief executive, Keith Greenfield.

"We have decided to trial these extra round-trips over the summer weekends.

"If they prove popular, we will give serious consideration to keeping them all year round."

The additional FastCat sailings will depart from Portsmouth Harbour at 12.15am, 2.15am, 4.15am and 5.15am, and from Ryde Pier Head at 2.47am, 4.47am and 5.47am.
