BACK ON BOARD: Bluebridge's Santa Regina ferry, which was out of action for nearly two weeks, is back in service.

Bluebridge ferry Santa Regina is back on the Cook Strait run this morning following a 12-day layoff caused by a port engine camshaft problem.

Repair work was undertaken at its Glasgow Wharf berth after spare parts were manufactured by a Lower Hutt engineering firm Acme Engineering.

The ferry successfully underwent sea trials in Wellington Harbour last night.

Bluebridge spokeswoman Wendy Pannett said Santa Regina and Straitsman would today return to their normal sailing roster of two return trips per day between Wellington and Picton.
