The 1900 hours sailing from Aberdeen to Lerwick on Friday 19 June will depart one hour earlier than timetabled and will call at Kirkwall at 0000 hours allowing Orkney athletes and supporters to travel to Shetland ahead of the weekend of sport.

The return southbound 1900 hours sailing from Lerwick to Aberdeen on Sunday 21 June will also call into Kirkwall at 0000 hours.

James Linklater, Customer Care Manager at NorthLink Ferries, said: “The Junior Inter-county competition is a key event in the calendar for both Orkney and Shetland so we are keen for as many competitors and spectators to enjoy the event, with the additional calls this will be possible.”

“We’re delighted to be accommodating those travelling with us to Shetland and wish both teams the best of luck in this year’s competition.”

The annual Junior Inter-county will see over 200 young athletes from across Orkney and Shetland compete in a series of sports including netball, swimming, athletics, hockey and football for the coveted Stuart Cup.

The Orkney and Shetland Junior Inter-county teams are just two of the many supported by the NorthLink Ferries sponsorship programme, which helps a wide range of community groups, schools and individuals as they travel to and from Orkney and Shetland.
