More disruption to Manannan sailings

Wed, 04 Apr 2012


Gale force winds are disrupting fastcraft sailings for a second day running.

This morning's Belfast to Douglas crossing has been put back whilst the gales continue.

The Steam Packet Company said it expected the Manannan to leave at 12.30pm.

As a result, the 3.00pm sailing to Liverpool has been put back by an hour, but passengers are asked to check in by 3.00pm.

The 7.15pm return crossing is also going to be delayed by around 15 minutes, with those booked on the sailing to check in by 6.30pm.

There have been gales reaching up to force 8 in the Irish Sea this morning.
