Wightlink have now been forced to cancel a number of sailings on its Yarmouth-Lymington route due to staff shortage.
Yesterday, the cross-Solent operator was running with cancellations on its Fastcat service to and from Ryde. Later in the day, it was announced that the Fishbourne-Portsmouth car ferry service would see cancellations today (Friday).
Now, it has been announced that the 14:00, 16:00, 18:00 and 20:05 sailings from Lymington and the 15:05, 17:05, 19:00 and 21:10 sailings from Yarmouth have all been cancelled.
Although the reason for the staff absence hasn’t been confirmed, it could be related to self-isolation during the coronavirus crisis.
UPDATE @ 14:30 – Wightlink has confirmed that there will be further cancellations tomorrow (Saturday).
The 12:00, 14:00 and 16:00 sailings from Lymington and the 13:05, 15:05 and 17:05 sailings from Yarmouth have all been cancelled on the Yarmouth-Lymington route for Saturday 21st March 2020.
