PASSENGERS who took part in a Wightlink survey into Friday night sailing times from Portsmouth to Fishbourne have voted to change the 9pm ferry from Portsmouth to 10pm.
Sean Millward, head of port operations, said: "We had been approached by several people during our Meet the Managers consultation events who wanted to travel on a later sailing on Fridays so we decided to find out for ourselves what our customers would prefer.
"We will make the change on April 7 when our next timetable comes into effect."
Nearly 500 customers took part — 79 per cent chose the later sailing and 21 per cent voted to keep the timetable as it is.
Seventy-two per cent of people were Islanders while 28 per cent were from the mainland.
Wightlink publicised the online poll through Island media and promoted it on social media through Facebook and Twitter.
