Red Funnel have been forced to cancel a number of vehicle ferry and hi-speed sailings this morning (Tuesday), with delays also being experienced on the operator’s cross-Solent services.
Earlier this morning, the 05:00 car ferry sailing from Southampton was cancelled for operational reasons, as well as the return 06:30 sailing from East Cowes.
Now, the 06:45 Red Jet from West Cowes has also been cancelled alongside the 07:15 from Southampton and the 07:45 from West Cowes. Technical issues are being blamed.
The operational reasons continue to hamper the vehicle ferry service with delays of 15 minutes on the 08:00 Southampton to East Cowes and the 09:30 return.
It is unknown at this stage if there will be any further cancellations or delays.
UPDATE @ 08:05 – Red Funnel are now running a one-boat service on their Red Jet route, with departures from West Cowes at XX:15 and Southampton at XX:45.
The 08:15 Red Jet from Southampton to West Cowes has been cancelled.
UPDATE @ 11:57 – The 12:15 Red Jet sailing from Southampton and the 12:45 from West Cowes have both been cancelled.
UPDATE @ 13:15 – Due to the ongoing technical issue, Red Funnel have now cancelled the 15:15 sailing from Southampton and the 15:45 return from West Cowes.
