Queen not going on 8/29

Post by johnhens »

DEPARTURE STATUS: The Queen IV has postponed the Sunday 8-29 crossing until Monday 8-30 because of GALE WARNINGS Sunday. Sunday passengers will depart 8am Monday 8-30. Some seats for passengers scheduled for 8-30 will be available. Priority will be given to those with the shortest planned stays on the island. The remaining Monday passengers will depart at about 5pm Monday with check in at 4pm.

That seems quite reasonable. Two trips in one day. I wonder if they are they planning to return after dark on Monday? Or spend the night and return at sunrise with a small delay in Tuesday morning's departure?

The gales of November come early.
