Time change no bother to Whidbey Island ferries

Daylight savings time ends early Sunday morning, Nov. 4, but the lost hour won’t affect Washington State Ferries on Saturday.

“The full sailing day of Saturday, Nov. 3, starts and ends on Pacific Northwest Daylight Savings Time,” states a news release. There was never a threat of confusion on the Whidbey Island runs when daylight savings time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday. The last sailing Saturday night (technically Sunday morning) is from Mukilteo at 1:05 a.m., nearly an hour before the time change kicks in.

Meanwhile, islanders are reminded to set their clocks back one hour before retiring Saturday night. The sun will rise at 6:59 a.m. Sunday, an hour earlier than Saturday.
