Sheltering in Ramsgate – 14th May

Dan left for home that morning (thanks for your help across the Thames Dan!), and we were glad we had brought the trip forward by a day, as the weather was atrocious.  Winds building to Force 6 or 7, and torrential rain.  I was settled in the cabin with the heater on when yachts started arriving!  Turned out it was the Ostend – Ramsgate race organised by the Royal Temple Yacht Club, and about 40 yachts made the harbour – a lot of soaking crews.  If I had known how many were coming in, I might have gone to the harbour mouth to watch them in the seas outside, but I imagine it might have been a bit scary!
