I know Steve has been busy in the last few weeks dodging hurricanes etc etc so I hope he doesn't mind me posting.
I was lucky enough to go to the final awards of this in the last week - dusted off the DJ to boot
Poole Sea Safari made it to the final after a visit from the judges on what had to be the worst day possible ! wet and windy and not really the chance to show the boat or trip or business on the glory it deserves.
Anyhow....I was fully expecting him to win, speech (ish) all ready etc etc...
As I and his permanent skipper joke about - 'We just drive the boat ' so I feel honoured just to be there.
The announcment is made .....a hotel that has been well established for donkeys years wins...
but Poole Sea Safari is 'Highly Commended'
I feel a huge and well deserved achievement for Steve & family and full time crew - a new business, in a tough market from a standing start.
I'm sure anyone who has been out with him agrees !
