Fast Ferries Canceling Because of Bad Weather

Ed Schoenfeld, CoastAlaska – Juneau

Alaska’s fast ferries are canceling sailings due to rough winter weather. The Juneau-based Fairweather skipped several runs to Haines, Skagway and Sitka last week, including Friday. And the Cordova-based Chenega dropped a trip to Whittier. Saturday sailings for both ships have also been cancelled. Ferry chief Jim Beedle says high winds and waves give the high-speed catamarans a rough ride.
