Extra weekend Heysham sailings due to freight backlog

Increased demand after Wednesday's cancellations

Extra sailings are being put on this weekend.

Poor weather earlier in the week meant Wednesday's Steam Packet crossings had to be cancelled.

It's lead to an increase in demand for freight and passenger sailings.

A planned maintenance night has been postponed and the Ben-my-Chree will now sail from Douglas to Heysham, at 7:45pm tomorrow, returning at 2:15am on Sunday.

Those affected by Wednesday's cancellations are urged to get in touch with the Steam Packet reservations team on 661661.
