BC Ferries cancels sailings on Route 3

No sailings on major ferry routes were cancelled Saturday, however they were delayed because of the wind, including a morning sailing to Nanaimo from Horseshoe Bay.

In Abbotsford, the wind tore the roof off of at least one home, and in Horseshoe Bay, heavy seas pushed almost all of the rental boats at Sewell's Marina ashore and sank the facility's breakwater barge.

Deborah Marshall with BC Ferries said Sewell's Marina, which is right next to the terminal, was "heavily damaged" and left debris floating in the water. The service resumed mid-afternoon with the 3:15 sailing from Langdale and continued for the rest of the day, shifting to a modified schedule in the evening.

Sailings between Brentwood Bay and Mill Bay have been cancelled as well.
