Isle of Man sailings update
19th December, 2011
Following calmer weather over the past weekend, the fastcraft Mannanan has performed well and managed to keep the Island supplied with foodstuff and perishables although the vessel can only carry eight trailers per sailing. Following the dry docking of the Ben My Chree last Friday 16th for repairs to her bow thrust unit we have once again built up a backlog of freight at Heysham and at our UK depot.
At the time of writing the information we have is that the Ben My Chree repairs should be completed later today and if this is so the Steam Packet Company expect to carry out a freight only sailing from Heysham at 02.15 on Tuesday 20th. Depending on space allocated to us we may or may not clear our backlog but we will ensure shipment of chilled, perishable and pharmaceutical goods as well as our regular customers traffic.
We will continue to provide service updates on this webpage or follow us on http://twitter.com/ManxIndie
