Ramsgate Lifeboat Open Day 2010

Despite the peculiar Ramsgate climate, although there were times today when it was thunder and rain the sun is now shining, we did manage to get to the lifeboat open day.

I took the inevitable pictures and the children had a wonderful time playing with a real lifeboat.

The pictures are at they may take a while to appear as my antique laptop is struggling a bit.

Looking at the lifeboat station with my booksellers hat on I noticed one of the books on their bookshelves is “Storm Warriors or the Ramsgate lifeboat at Work on the Goodwin Sands” I publish a cheap reprint of this book and have published a fair chunk of it online, click on the link to read it

Oh and last years pictures for anyone who wants more.


  1. Good someone publicises Ramsgate events, perhaps you could get a job with the tdc tourism and events department, but on second thoughts i guess sitting on your backside and doing nothing all day wouldn't suit you.

  2. I saw no advance publicity for this whatsoever which is a shame as I would have liked to have gone.


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
