Director of Harbours, Captain Michael Brew comments:

“July was a mixed month. If you exclude the one off impact of cruise liner traffic and day trips which was exceptionally good in 2008, normal scheduled passenger traffic is practically identical to last year with 10 extra passengers this year. However, the fall in vehicle numbers is slightly disappointing particularly with the extra vehicle capacity now available since the introduction of the larger fast craft Manannan. In the present market place these figures should be seen as being a positive outcome.”
