I went on the Red Arrows trip on Aug 29th and I'm so glad I did. The weather was atrocious on the trip to Brixham, and had I been prone to sea sickness I would have cancelled, as indeed a couple of my friends did. I imagine Stuart Line went ahead with the trip because it was a special event, and under the circumstances they did everything they could to make it as enjoyable as possible. Bad weather is nobody's fault, and in the end the decision to go or not to go rests with the individual. The crew worked hard cleaning up the inevitable messes, and managed to maintain a drinks service throughout. My one suggestion is that a high level grab rail would be helpful. I didn't dare leave my seat in case I landed in someone's lap, or grabbed onto something I shouldn't!
Once in Brixham the weather cleared, and the rest of the day was wonderful. I have seen the Red Arrows several times, but from our position out in the bay it was the most spectacular experience ever. The trip back was beautiful; the calm sea enabled the boat to hug the coast and we were treated to the usual interesting and humorous commentary.
So well done Stuart Line. Good value, good fun, and all my family want to join me next time!
