Red Funnel speeds ahead with strong Cowes Week Performance
19-08-2003 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."
