UPDATED STORY: The Steam Packet has cancelled tonight’s Ben-my-Chree sailing from Douglas to Heysham.
That means the 2.15am Christmas Eve sailing from Heysham will also be cancelled, because the vessel will still be in Douglas.
The remainder of the sailings tomorrow (Christmas Eve) are also subject to delay or cancellation. A decision will be made at 7am tomorrow about the scheduled 8.45am sailing and the 2.15pm return.
Steam Packet chief executive Mark Woodward said the company was looking into the possibility of sailing on Christmas Day.
A number of sailings were cancelled last week because of gales.
