    Director of Harbours, Captain Michael Brew comments:

    “June passenger figures are disappointing with the main positive element being the ongoing strength of the Heysham route. Allowance however should be made for the fact that June 2004 contain the Lady of Man’s day excursion traffic. The similar sailings for 2005 were operated in May.”
