MECHANICAL problems on one of its catamarans have been blamed for changes to some Wightlink sailings to and from the Isle of Wight today (Tuesday).
The company said sailings due to leave Portsmouth at 15 minutes past the hour and from Ryde at 47 minutes past the hour would run as timetabled.
The 6.40am from Portsmouth would not sail however and the following sailings would use a charter vessel (taking 25 minutes):
From Ryde Pier Head 07:10, 08:10 and 09:10
From Portsmouth Harbour 07:40 and 08:40
