Wightlink have reduced a number of sailings between Fishbourne and Portsmouth today due to “adverse weather and reduced power on the Wight Light”.

The Isle of Wight ferry company say a number of Wight Light’s sailings have been cancelled but that Victoria of Wight will be running her usual timetable.

I can’t believe they have to ship the boat over to France to get its MOT….. I hope they don’t have to ship Victoria back to Turkey for its MOT…. Is there nobody qualified in the UK to do this service ?????


Ah… I have the answer… free holiday for the crew!


It never used to be a problem with the older ferries. No public service obligation of the ferry companies, no CMA investigation & no progress on the fixed link either. Who wouldn’t care to be a Wightlink or Red Funnel shareholder? They can do just as they please and get away with it!


What’s new, this mob couldn’t run a corner shop. Cancellations after cancellations some of which are fabricated to suit them and definitely not the customer. I have had enough time to move back to the mainland and the real world.
