Red Funnel speeds ahead with strong Cowes Week Performance

Red Funnel, the original Isle of Wight ferry operator, is delighted to announce an extremely successful Cowes Week performance, particularly on the Hi-Speed service. Following Red Funnel’s £3million investment in Red Jet 4 which has a capacity to carry 277 passengers, there has been a 10% surge in Cowes Week carryings compared with last year. The Red Jet service has been supported by a major TV campaign on Meridian promoting Cowes as a day trip destination.

Olive Glass, Red Funnel’s marketing director, comments: "Red Jet 4 has been a welcome addition to the fleet and the extra capacity has enabled us to carry more yachtsmen as well as day trippers to Cowes Week."
