BC Ferries has cancelled the final round trip between Saltery Bay (Powell River) and Earls Cove (Sechelt) on Monday, January 23.

Due to not having the required number of crew on the Malaspina Sky, the following sailings will not run:

9:45 pm departing Saltery Bay (Powell River)
10:40 pm departing Earls Cove (Sechelt)

A specific number of crew members is required on board the vessel to ensure the safety of passengers in the unlikely event of an emergency and to comply with Transport Canada regulations, according to BC Ferries.

“The decision to cancel a sailing in these circumstances is made when we have exhausted all options to find a replacement crew,” stated BC Ferries. “That said, if circumstances change and replacement crew become available, we will notify customers immediately.”
