  • Hi Russell
    Thank you very much for such an enjoyable trip yesterday.
    I'm sure you know that all aboard had a fantastic time and will be talking about for months to come.
    Our lunch was also very enjoyable as was the whole day.
    We hope you enjoy your day on Friday and the rest of the ceremonies.
    Best regards

  • Hi Russell,

    After the mudfest that was IOW 2012 there is no way I'd travel to the festival any other way! We arrived from Glasgow a good 2 hours early and got fitted on an earlier boat by the lovely lady that met us in the cafe. What an experience, added so much to the whole weekend. Most defiantly see you next year.

  • Your Rib transfer service to the IOW festival was fantastic. The service worked really well, it was very civilised to meet in the pub at Hamble and have some lunch and a pint before heading across. It was definitely the best way to travel to the IOW festival and it is the only way I would ever travel to the IOW festival again.
