U2 concert overloads ferries

Wednesday’s sold-out U2/Black Eyed Peas concert in Vancouver resulted in sailing waits for Islanders headed to the mainland.

Reservations were fully booked yesterday for today’s 1 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. sailings from Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen.

The busier traffic for a Wednesday resulted in a two-sailing wait at mid-day today.

B.C. Ferries’ spokeswoman Deborah Marshall said an unscheduled extra sailing was put on at noon.

Westcoast Air said it was adding flights today for concert-goers
