Wightlink cancel Yarmouth sailings due to ‘extreme weather conditions’

Wightlink will be suspending its Lymington-Yarmouth service late afternoon for the rest of Friday (November 9).

This is because the extreme weather conditions may cause difficulties in navigating the Lymington River.

Strong winds are forecast this afternoon and evening with gusts up to 70 miles an hour in The Solent.

The last sailing from Lymington today will be at 3pm and the last boat from Yarmouth at 4.05pm.

Wightlink does not expect services to and from Portsmouth to be affected by the weather and has re-booked all customers on that route.

There will be extra car ferry sailings between Portsmouth and Fishbourne and an extra 3.40pm FastCat sailing from Portsmouth Harbour to Ryde Pier Head, returning at 4.10pm.

The Wightlink website has full details of the amended timetable and further service updates.

Wightlink apologies for any inconvenience caused to its customers.
