BC Ferries has advised the FAC that the Island Gwawis will be used for Route 19 crews to learn and conduct operational readiness drills over the month of March. Passengers may notice the Gwawis sailing opposite the Quinsam during some of these drills, starting tomorrow, March 2. There may be times when it makes sense as part of these drills for them to load vehicles and people onto the Gwawis and sail as a supplementary sailing, but the timing will only be known as the drills and training unfold. To clarify, no extra sailings are officially planned and if they occur they are simply a “bonus” for customers who were waiting for a scheduled Quinsam sailing.
Do you have the new schedule for the Island Class starting April 12th is the last I heard .
No, I don’t believe it’s been finalized yet.
