    Quote Message: After the success of last year’s first Pride event in Guernsey, and same sex marriage legislation coming into law two months ago, you might think Liberate’s work is done.

    You've been having your say on Facebook over the weekend and today, and it would be fair to say that opinion is divided on just how much of a "freak" incident this was:

    Steve: This should not happen I hope everyone involved is ok. Condor should be aware of this and take appropriate action to minimise wake when passing these areas.

    Lucie: We have always been aware of this and try to warn people when the tide is high and condor goes past.

    Angela: My husband has been worried about Condor waves for some time. He witnessed a similar incident of a child being washed off the wall.

    Dan: Nothing has changed - this sometimes happens after a ferry goes past (not just the wave piercers) and has done for years.

    Andrew: Shocking. Boat causes waves. And doubly shocking, people blame Condor. Boats cause waves. They have done for many years.
