Information from gutter of full sheet:-JERSEY EUROPA 1988 Transport and Communication
Sea Transport – Here the accent is on the environmentally popular fast hydrofoil service operating between Jersey and St.Malo, with connection to Guernsey and Weymouth (on which route a new 406-seat high speed waterjet catamaran, the first of its type, and capable of cruising at 36  knots, is also soon to be introduced). Journey time to St.Malo from Jersey is 70 minutes, and landmarks of both provide a composite skyline as background to the hydrofoil currently in service.
