Red Funnel services are running to schedule after fog cancellations

All Red Funnel services are running to schedule again after fog cancelled some sailings on Tuesday morning (November 27).

A spokesman for Red Funnel said: “Dense fog is causing some service delays on ferry crossings between East and West Cowes and Southampton this morning. As a result of vehicle ferry cancellations during the night (also due to dense fog), traffic backlogs are creating some interruptions, with delays most prolonged from Southampton.

“At this time, we can confirm that Red Osprey most recently departed from Southampton at 7.15am and Red Eagle departed East Cowes at 7.15am.

“The next scheduled 9am departures from both Southampton and East Cowes are anticipated to depart as planned, however we will continue to monitor the situation.

“The Hi-Speed Red Jet foot passenger service is currently running as a ‘shuttle service’ in both directions, meaning that due to reduced visibility passengers should expect longer crossings as well as varied departure times subject to when the vessels arrive.

“Passengers are advised to check for service status updates as well as follow Red Funnel’s official, live travel news feed on Twitter, @RF_Travel_News for the most up to date information. We would also like to thank our passengers in advance for their patience as our staff and crew work hard to get everyone on board and to their destination as quickly and safely as possible.”
