Red Funnel is warning of potential disruption to its Isle of Wight ferry services on Tuesday (January 23) as Storm Jocelyn approaches. 

The Island ferry operator said it is ‘anticipating some further disruption’ to both of its cross-Solent services.

The Red Jet could see possible cancellations between now and Tuesday evening, with the potential for delays during the same period on the vehicle ferry service.

There are currently no weather warnings from either local or national forecasters in place for the Island at this time.

Passengers are reminded that during Red Jet 7’s ongoing annual refit, and with Red Jet 4 out of service due to a technical failure of her starboard engine, sailings are operating on a revised timetable.

Meanwhile, essential maintenance work is being completed at the East Cowes port, seeing a ‘small number’ of late-night crossings in each direction cancelled until March 20.

Until March 16, two crossings have been added to the Red Jet timetable to help ‘ease the impact’ of the East Cowes works, with an 11.40pm ferry from Southampton and a 12.15am crossing from Cowes added for Saturday nights.
