Several BC Ferries sailings cancelled ahead of Remembrance Day

Nov 10 2021, 9:07 pm

BC Ferries has announced cancellations on several routes for November 10 and for Remembrance Day on November 11.

The cancellations are due to a “mechanical difficulty” with the Spirit of Vancouver Island.

A statement from BC Ferries says the vessel is having issues with the starboard gearbox, which has led to the service cancellations.

To help out with higher-than-normal volumes, the Coastal Celebration will be providing additional trips.

Other sailings are set to depart as per the current schedule, and customers who are going to be affected by these cancellations will be notified.

BC Ferries has offered an apology on its website.

“We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience you may experience as a result of these cancellations. We are working to resolve the issue on the Spirit of Vancouver Island, and we will keep you informed as soon as more information becomes available.”
