#ferry - Ferry crossings by the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company reports EnergyFM, are being forced to change sailing times to Heysham, this week because of increased silting in the north-west English port.
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.
Fastferry craft Manannan will operate two sailings tomorrow, in place of conventional ferry Ben-my-Chree.
The revised schedule is as follows, by consulting directly the ferry operator's website.
