This from John Hague, Sandown. Ed

There was plenty of dialogue over a interval referring to the ferry corporations capacity to stop potential passengers from travelling when they’re doing so in contravention of Covid laws.

The businesses have at all times indicated that it not inside their capability to do that.

Nevertheless in Wightlink’s Normal Phrases and Circumstances there’s the next paragraph.:

10. Conduct of passengers
10.1 If, in our affordable opinion, any passenger seems to: –

10.1.1 be prone to trigger discomfort or disturbance to different passengers or to our workers or crew;

or 10.1.2 pose a menace to the security or security of a crusing, of our premises or of different passengers or our workers or crew;

we might refuse to permit that passenger on board the crusing and require that passenger to vacate our premises.

If that passenger is already aboard a crusing, we might limit the actions of that passenger whereas on board the crusing and require that passenger to disembark the crusing as quickly as fairly attainable. 10.2

We won’t be obliged to waive or refund the price of your ticket or reserving or to reimburse you for another prices or losses in these circumstances.

It happens to me that these travelling after they shouldn’t be, are prone to be contravening 10.1.1 or 10.1.2  or is that over simplification?
