WB Yeats will be calling to Rosslare tomorrow afernoon on her way to Dublin from Cherbourg
Yes it seems a bit strange if u ask me. IF recently said that it's unlikely that they will be operating a Rosslare to France route in 2019. I know WB Yeats will be operating from Dublin so I don't see the point in going in going into Rosslare tomorrow unless they have future plans to have her running from there.

What's the story with the AIS at the moment? WB's position hasn't been updated for 7 hours now.

Looks like she is bunkering at sea off the Danish coast , tanker close to her port side at the moment .
Yes. Does anyone know how long the bunkering process takes. Seems like she's been there for quite a while now.

Thanks. Looks like she will be going the long way around after all. Maybe with the wind still very strong they don't want to risk going via the canal.

WB hasn't gone faster than 8 knots or so. You'd think IF would want to have her in Cherbourg ASAP. Seems a bit strange to me. She's also heading back towards Flensburg now at 2kn

Completely confused now OW seems to be replacing Episilon on H-D from this sat? But Epsilon seems to be back on the Rota for the last sailing out of Holyhead on the evening of the 18th Tues?
Epsilon does a round trip every weekend to Cherbourg. Departing from Dublin on Saturday afternoon and arriving back to Dublin on Monday afternoon. OW covers for Epsilon on D-H at the weekend at the moment because she is running out of Dublin for the winter and not Rosslare

OW has arrived into Dublin 2.5 hours late. She had to go up and down off Dun Laoghaire and Bray, then had to be assisted by tugs Shackleton and Beaufort from the entrance to the port. She doesn't seem to be able to handle any sort of strong wind very well. It was the same last winter when she was on the Dublin Holyhead route.

Its.meant to be Ulysses and Episilon on the crossings today per the website ? OScar Wilde isn't meant to be on this route until Jan?
Sorry for the confusion I didn't clarify. She had crossed from Cherbourg, leaving there yesterday. However over the busy Christmas period for previous years she was on the Dublin Holyhead route and had many sailings cancelled due to weather. She is due to move to the Holyhead route on 22nd to take over for Epsilon.

According to a Flemsburg source, WB Yeats is being prepared for delivery to Irish Ferries Next Friday 30 November 2018,

The rust over the bridge is now removed and the final work on the passenger areas is being completed.


To be handed over in Flensenburg? Or delivered to Dublin?

As I've said before this is poor by IF. Giving us no update on WB at all. You'd think they could at least give a date as to when she'll arrive in Dublin.
