Steam Packet announce changes to sailings

Tue, 18 Dec 2018


The Steam Packet Company is being forced to change sailing times to Heysham this week because of increased silting.

The company says the sailing time changes are necessary to work around the water depths available and to allow sailing crews to maintain work and rest patterns.

The Manannan will operate two sailings tomorrow, in place of the Ben-my-Chree. Manannan will depart Douglas at 08:45hrs and return from Heysham at 14:15hrs.

The revised schedule is as follows:

Tuesday 18th December

Douglas to Heysham 19:45hrs – This sailing will now depart at 20:45hrs

 

Wednesday 19th December

Heysham to Douglas 02:15hrs – This sailing will now depart at 04:00hrs

Douglas to Heysham 08:45hrs – This sailing will depart as scheduled, but will be undertaken by Manannan

Heysham to Douglas 14:15hrs – This sailing will depart as scheduled, but will be undertaken by Manannan
