I note WB Yeats is sailing to Cherbourg today so the full Summer Schedule 2020 is kicking from today.

Isle Of Inishmore was involved in the locating of an upturned Orkany Longliner or fast liner (one or the other forgotten which one it was). There is an article on afloat.ie about it

WB Yeats cancelled yesterday due to 'technical difficulties'. Anyone know what the problem is?

I have heard engine issues, but not sure how true that is. She limped into Dublin last night at 6kts with a tug, so would make sense.

Inishmore has moved to berth three in Rosslare tonight, bow in.

A rare sight on that berth.

Sadly, a crew member is missing since 9pm last night, the ship, along with Coast Guard helis from both sides of the Irish Sea searching last night.

I've just seen something on the news about a crew member being reported missing from the WB Yeats. The articles said WB Yeats was traveling from dublin to holyhead and the alarm was raised at 9pm. The crew member was last seen between 3:30pm and 4pm. ICG, HMC and local RNLI crews are out searching. This could be the extraordinary circumstances.

What I've said above are from both of these articles.
