Great pics. I especially like the one with the tug at the bow of the Oscar.

EPSILON arrived in Belfast yesterday morning, a couple of days later than we originally expected as she had to continue on the Holyhead route as Oscar was still in dry dock! 

I have a few pics on my Flickr page at https://flic.kr/p/22LYp4H for those interested.

Oscar Wilde making her first crossing of the year to Cherbourg but from Dublin. The OW must be the only ship that has/can serve all IF routes.

Ulysses made her usual crossing last night then moved to the Rio Tinto jetty (think it has been renamed) where she remains with both the 024 ex Holyhead and the 0805 from Dublin cancelled. She is due to take up her 1410 sailing. Does anybody know what has happened or is it still something to do with her rudder problems last week?

This was a scheduled cancellation - to allow for an underwater survey I believe. OW is going to take up an extra 1415 ex DUB & 2000 ex HHD to help shift any backlog

Unconfirmed reports on the Facebook that the Inishmore has a technical issue with one of its engines.

As it is currently the only vessel on the Southern Corridor also providing cover for the Stena Europe with Stena taking spaces on board, a cancellation is not good news.

Hopefully the Inishmore can carry on until the Europe returns on Monday night (assuming refit is to schedule)

Interesting,
Inishmore is constantly late at the moment but I just put that down to the weather and having extra load due to Europe being off. it wasn't showing on Marine Traffic for me for a few days but that now is fixed.

Epsilon is still in Belfast and is cancelled today. Its Trip to Cherbourg tomorrow is still showing on time.

Oscar should be shortly making its way to Rosslare to resume Rossslare - Cherbourg tonight.

Also ULysses schedule is amended to run around 2.5 hours late due to work on her berth in Holyhead.
