WB Yeats had trouble berthing in Holyhead this afternoon due to high winds presumably finally on the berth at 5pm.

Mega Express Four departed Dublin 16.00ish for its first weekend sailing to Cherbourg.
Mega Express Four was can cancelled yesterday afternoon ex 14.30 Dublin and return due to the weather.

Epsilon sailing to Cherbourg ex Dublin was delayed last night departing 5 hours late after a 4 hour late from Cherbourg.

IOI Rosslare Pembroke was running around 10 hours late this morning arriving in Rosslare at 16.45 vice 06.45. With the  08.45 ex Rosslare and return cancelled it is now back on time for the 20.45 tonight.

Wound not fancy being on any sailing on the Irish Sea this weekend.

Estrid is still on the berth in Holyhead at 13.00 Adventurer (and Ulysses) are waiting outside. Weather? 

Horizon has been re timed ex Rosslare to Cherbourg now due to sail at Midnight due to the forecasted weather.
Sat 30/01/21

1st weekend of disruption since the Brexit related increase in direct France services.

Given the current situation with GB route quite and Cherbourg busy it will be interesting to see how IF manage the dry docking season. Last year they hired a Freighter in Stena Foreteller. With the current timetable only set until the end of the month we will surly see some news soon. 

Could they do something drastic such as suspend Rosslare Pembroke for a month?

There is now a Dublin - Cherbourg showing route on the Stena Line live freight timetable. It shows Estrid doing 1  return trip next weekend Jan 23/24. Things are getting very interesting.


From Stena website - because of ?operational issues? there will be only one trip each way per day from 15th to 26th January on Fishguard to Rosslare route. So, they have cut the timetable in half for about 10 days.

The timetable has been cut since last weekend.

Optima Seaways has just left Rosslare at 14000 02/01/2021. 1st sailing of the new DFDS Rosslare Dunkirk route.
Cant seem to find much photos or clips on Twitter yet anyway

I see that Stena have now tweaked their Dublin Holyhead timetable from 01/01/2021.

The biggest change is the afternoon Adventurer sailing from Holyhead now not leaving until 14.45.

Stena Vinga took over Rosslare Fishguard as per schedule last night but has been delayed today due to a medical emergency, I hope everyone is ok. This evenings/tonight's scheduled sailings from Rosslare and Fishguard have been cancelled.
Vinga now gone technical, cancelled ex Fishguard tonight, is only just leaving Rosslare as I type. I don't think this ferry is as good a relief ship as Nordica given all the cancellations due to weather on the Cherbourg route since Vinga arrived in Rosslare. I can't imagine the hauliers are very happy.

As mentioned Stena Horizon is still in quarantine due to a number of Covid 19 cases among the crew.
Stena Estrid seems to have gone technical on arrival in Dublin last night not leaving until this afternoon. I am only seeing this now after the fact how did Adventurer dock in Dublin ?

Irish Ferries and Stena plan to run alternate week schedules on their ferries to Cherbourg so that there is a direct, roll-on, roll-off ferry service for lorries every day from next year.

Irish Ferries will operate a Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday service one week from Dublin to the port, in addition to their usual Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday weekly departures.

Stena will continue its service between Rosslare and Cherbourg on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and plans to add a Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday service on the week Irish Ferries does not sail on these days from Dublin to ensure a daily service between Ireland and mainland Europe.

Irish Ferries declined to comment on the new service.



It appears confusing, are they adding Ferries or just tweaking their schedules?
