Arrivederci Anna Mur

Wightlink’s St. Helen, underwent her final crossing from Portsmouth to Fishbourne on the 26th March 2015. She was laid up at Solent Refit after being bought by Delcomar, who also purchased St. Catherine and renamed her GB Conte. Work began in earnest to transform her. Her name and flag were changed on the 14th June.

Nothing appeared to be happening for a long time then on the 5th September she left the slipway and docked alongside the deepwater berth. She already had an ETA of the 15th October 2015 though the destination was still Portsmouth to Fishbourne. The ETA was subsequently changed to 3rd October.

And so the day of departure finally arrived. She was listed to sail at 1pm on the 17th. The weather had been pretty bad leading up to it so they needed a window. And at 1pm she did indeed move but had to turn around to load stores before sailing off via the Needles to join her sister in Sardinia. Destination: Sant’Antioco (Santu Antiogu) with a current ETA of the 27th September at 3pm UTC.
