    Question Did Wightlink ferry have a navigational problem?

    No, I wasn't seeing things last evening (Thursday) after we had anchored off Hurst.. the Wightlink ferry charging in through Hurst narrows with the flood tide..

    Had it somehow got lost in fog?

    Someone who knows will be along shortly but I'm sure there was a thread on here about one of the ferries going west for some purpose. If you know which one it was you can find out exactly where it was coming from here: https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais...50.790/zoom:19

    Indeed. Only a 3 hour stop at Portland. Hardly worth going!
    Gosport NCI - Call us on Ch 65 for a radio check if passing.
