1. We were not well positioned to see the race start.
2. We then stayed close to the race leader, and it was difficult to see the other maxis as they headed South.
3. The captain said he could not slow down so we could see the others, "due to traffc behind".
4. Not as good as last year...

Service: BOOKING WAS EASY.
SAFE.
DELIVERED WHAT WAS EXPECTED.

Off the record:
Two of the toilets showed "ENGAGED', but were in fact vacant. An inconvenient queue formed.
Product: Easy Booking. Delivered what was expected.

Service: The trip was great fun. This was our first trip out to sea in the ferry. For a gold medal Paralympian (which I am) it was a great way to get up close to the boats.
Not only did we follow the leading boats out but also catched up with the smaller boats (shame we could not find our friend's boat who was in the race somewhere). The commentator was also informative and congenial. Will definitely go again.
Product: Refer to Customer Experience :))
