Maiden voyage of the new sea line connecting the two cities and is starting to work today
Good morning and welcome aboard the first ferry for Sitges “announced yesterday public address test on the trip boat connecting Barcelona and Sitges regular maritime connection and BlueCat operating company. The PA, however, forgot to recommend passenger- journalists and representatives of institutions that were forewarned and take a pill for motion sickness before leaving. More than one inexperience of work and surf at the same time was a bad experience.
A wonderful journey was presumed. The day accompanied with a bright sun, the sea sparkled and the ability to go in short sleeves made the visit to Sitges the most appetizing.
The new offering ferry trip is intended especially for tourists and cruise passengers. During the presentation, which also took on board, testing the endurance of more than one, they said, “it is another way to share tourism between Barcelona and Sitges”. The authorities hope that it will be an “opportunity to fluff the mass tourism of Barcelona”.
On leaving the port, the passage could enjoy the skyline of Barcelona. The imposing hotel Vela, recognizable towers, the Sagrada Familia cathedral and is blurred in Eixample that could only glimpse the streets climbing up the mountain …. and all moving from left to right from the high seas.
“We do not intend to compete with the train, but we want this to serve for an experience for the Mediterranean”, said the head of marketing for the company, aware that the initiative is not intended as an alternative to the 35 minutes it takes the railway to connect the center of both cities.
“Oh, oh, oh, how boot this,” said a reporter he closed his eyes clinging to the seat to prevent the rolling waves go to his head. “It seems we’re on the Dragon Khan”,.
Meanwhile, those responsible for the initiative showed their satisfaction. “It was a project we have been working since 2014. It is an opportunity in which we all win,” they said.
“Councillor, Councillor, are you okay?”, Two women, specialists in the marine industry, tried to resuscitate the first deputy mayor of Sitges, which succumbed to the movement and fell fulminated. He collapsed while making a move to enter cover. The impact was so strong that it was one minute on the floor unconscious until they finally came to. It was the culmination to a sharp rattle an hour and a half, which was to last only half an hour, and hardly could bear the unaccustomed. “I told you on the boat is better not to look the phone to not get dizzy,” he recalled pertinently, though in retrospect, a member of the crew.
The boat arrives traveling 35 knots (about 68 km / h), a very fast speed but may be delayed in departure and arrival to port where it should slow down. The Government expects the ferry is also consolidated in an alternative service for the Catalans who want to spend the day to Sitges and wish to make a slightly more original way.
Most journalists arrived groggy. However, in the terminal Sitges has installed a lounge area with good drinks and good food has arranged everything.
