Red Funnel has confirmed several scheduled Isle of Wight sailings have been cancelled for Thursday (February 22) following a technical issue.

Six cancellations have been announced by the cross-Solent travel provider on its Cowes–Southampton Red Jet passenger service.

The reason for the cancellations is due to a technical issue which requires an “extended survey period” on Red Jet 6, said Red Funnel.

The following crossings have been cancelled:

  • From Cowes: 6.40am, 7.50am and 9am.
  • From Southampton: 6.05am, 7.15am and 8.25am.

Red Funnel said teams are “working hard to fix the issue” and apologised for any inconvenience caused.
