Other sailings are unaffected but are likely to be busier with the influx of passengers from the cancelled sailings.

The 13:30 from Southampton and the 15:00 from East Cowes have both been added to the cancellation list.

“mechanical fault”: AKA not enough traffic to make the crossings profitable using the spare ferry.

Once Red Funnel were the better of the 2 car ferry operators. Not any more.
Poor reliability, poor customer service. It is now all about money money money
