Severe gale force 9 winds cause more sailing cancellations

Tue, 06 Dec 2011

Severe gale force winds have forced the Steam Packet Company to cancel yet more sailings.

The 7.45 crossing to Heysham and the return journey at 2.15 tomorrow morning have been called off due to the weather forecast.

The ferry operator is also warning that there could be problems for the 8.45am and 2.15pm sailings tomorrow.

The Ben my Chree has been cancelled on 9 days in the last 11, due to a combination of strong winds and a manoeuvrability problem with the vessel.

A decision on tomorrow's crossings will be made by 7.00am.

The severe gale force 9 winds are forecast until Friday.
