From Dave Morgan, Ryde:
I would like to record my thanks and admiration of the captain and crew for the cool and calm way an incident involving the Wightlink vessel St Clare on the 3am sailing from Portsmouth last Thursday was handled.
My colleague and I were travelling home on this boat after work. Soon after leaving the berth, it became apparent there was an issue with the vessel, its position in the harbour entrance not being the traditional one.
It was announced with a steady, reassuring voice that there was a problem with the main engines but we still had steering. It took a fair while fighting the tide to get back to the Gunwharf berth, as far as I am aware without the assistance of any other vessel or main engines for repairs to be effected.
This is without doubt a testament to the ship handling skills of the captain and crew of this vessel. I hope this letter will start the ball rolling for them all to be officially recognised for their professionalism by Wightlink.
