Due to the predicted weather forecast for Tuesday 17th April, the Scillonian III sailing has had to be cancelled.
There is a very deep low-pressure system in the Atlantic which is exceptional for spring and is even uncommon in winter. The low pressure is building up a large swell which is forecasted to be in the region of 6 metres throughout the day on Tuesday. Although no flights have been cancelled at this time, this weather is also likely to affect Skybus flights on Tuesday.
All Scillonian passengers booked to travel on Tuesday will be automatically transferred to the next sailing on Wednesday 18th April as follows:
Departing Penzance at 0900
(check-in closes 0830)
Departing St Mary’s at 1630
(check-in closes 1600)
