The MV Beaumont Hamel is set to travel to Farewell late Sunday afternoon with help from an icebreaker, but people traveling to Fogo Island and Change Islands can expect to do so by helicopter for the next little while.

According to an automated message on the ferry service hotline, the Beaumont Hamel will stay in Farewell once it arrives there because of mechanical problems.

A helicopter was carrying passengers Sunday and is scheduled to continue that service Monday, weather permitting.

The ferry was reportedly stuck at the Fogo Island terminal due to ice buildup.
