The boat arrived in Brixham yesterday and the service starts for a one month trial run on Friday. Fifteen minutes from dock to dock compared with 40 minutes by a number 12. Add £2.00 to the price of the ticket and you get bus travel around the Bay as well. So for £6.00 you can travel one way to Brixham and get the bus back to Torquay which isn't bad compared with £4.50 for a Torbay Dayrider. And 15 minutes isn't really long enough to get sea sick, well not too much anyway.
Not much route learning to do here, just leave the harbour and head a few degrees east of south and don't run into anything.
The boat is in Brixham now, it arrived yesterday.
