St Helena Line (SHL) has today advised SHG that a further problem has been detected with the starboard propeller. Divers have been deployed and confirmed that the propeller blades are locked in the full ahead position. The RMS will therefore continue the voyage on one engine. This will result in a two day delay to the ship’s arrival at St Helena – now scheduled to arrive on Friday, 21 April 2017.

Support has been provided to passengers wishing to make alternative travel arrangements or to change their travel itinerary.

Cargo operations are currently ongoing in Cape Town and the ship is expected to sail on completion of these operations either late this evening or early hours tomorrow morning, Saturday, 15 April 2017.

Further updates will be provided when received and the revised schedule will be published as soon as possible.
