STRONG WINDS FORCE CAR FERRY CANCELLATIONS

Published:

Red Funnel has been forced to cancel at least 2 sailings on its East Cowes-Southampton Route this afternoon (Sunday).

Strong winds in the Solent area, married with vessel limitations, mean that 2 vehicle ferry sailings have been pulled.

The 13:30 from Southampton and the 15:00 from East Cowes will not operate.

It’s unclear at this stage if any further sailings will be scrapped today.

Red Funnel apologises for any inconvenience to your journey.

Great that will keep some of the second home owners away for a bit longer

The fact that most are here already and have been since before christmas though, but it’s good it has slowed any new ones getting here.

Hate crime: Something is a hate incident if the victim or anyone else think it is motivated by hostility or prejudice.

I like your views, Jack in the Box. The number of landlords and estate agents flaunting their tenants and potential buyers before the eyes of the children of my staff (who, poor darlings, have not been able to see their own great-grandfather) is utterly disgusting. Shame the law breakers, I say, just like spivs and black marketeers were exposed after the second Great War.!

My family history of seven hundred years says that a friend to a D.F.L. is not a friend to the beautiful Isle of Wight. Please be friends with, or of, anyone. However, friend to rather sounds like compliance in the overall wipe out of indigenous minimum wage locals, actually born here, in favour of those who couldn’t tell you which side of Seagrove Bay the sun comes up. Hang on, we’ll go to the Audi and check the sat-nav.

It was an ironic nomenclature, used to draw attention to the hateful culture that pervades amongst a vocal minority of users on the pages of this and other online publications, who spin their hateful anti outsider rhetoric.

This might be the view of a few, but these opinions will resonate and put people off coming here. Or even (heaven forbid) buying property and moving here. Enough now! This level of prejudice would not be accepted in any other context of society.

Can you explain what the issue is with second home owners? Don’t they bring much needed revenue to the island ? Inject the pubs , restaurants and other businesses with income? I’d be interested to know why you feel so bitter

no they do not….second home owner may spend a few weeks a year in the island..meaning a few hundred quid to the local economy…

some one living here all year spends thousands

second home owners deprive the island of revenue by blocking a property from year round use

Looks a bit top-heavy to me. How stable are these vessels nowadays? I was most surprised when looking at that large vessel which nearly capsized going up to Southampton a while back, at how little of it seemed to be underwater.
