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.

WB Yeats running late since last night due to "Extraordinary Circumstances"?

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.

Anybody know anything about the delays to IF schedule today.



Re: Irish Ferries Fleet movements Reply #1827 on: December 11, 2020, 01:30:17 pm
IF schedule for 2021 up to end January available. It shows WB Yeats until 3rd Jan and one ship service for the rest of the month Dub-HHD. Epsilon "operating primarily as a freight service" for the month of January.



Re: Irish Ferries Fleet movements Reply #1828 on: December 11, 2020, 01:41:14 pm
Irish Ferries Full timetable will be released in the coming days.

My guess is there may be a surprise in store.



Re: Irish Ferries Fleet movements Reply #1829 on: December 12, 2020, 11:15:58 am
What we do know so far about IF sailings for 2021 -
from the timetable available for January we can see that the WB Yeats is off service from the 4th January for the rest of the month with no replacement service. (This seems a long time for a regular dry docking).
According to the France 2021 schedule WB is only taking up the route on the 25th May which seems to be quite a late start given that in 2018 the Oscar Wilde was on the route from February with Epsilon operating a Saturday crossing.
