Update @ 12:00: W.B. YEATS is currently approaching Holyhead. I understand that (contrary to previous reports elsewhere) this first sailing IS carrying passengers and cars as well as freight.
Irish Ferries W.B. YEATS left Dublin this morning, around an hour later than timetabled on what appears to be her first commercial crossing. She had been on the Dublin – Holyhead schedule to take the 08:05 sailing from Dublin in place of EPSILON (which has been covering ULYSSES while the latter is in dry dock) but left around an hour late. She is on the timetable for the remainder of the day with EPSILON replacing OSCAR WILDE on the second ship schedule from the 20:15 sailing ex Holyhead. in the meantime, EPSILON is occupying the main Irish Ferries berth in Dublin vacated by W.B. YEATS.
