I guess if you are in East Kent and were wondering about what to do this weekend then lashing out £2.50 to go over the Frigate Shtandart is a consideration.
It’s all on their website, see http://www.shtandart.ru/en/frigate here are a few of the photos I took in Ramsgate this morning.
The original of this frigate dates from 1703 a time when Ramsgate was doing considerable trade in the Baltic, so this may not be a first for Ramsgate, although it would be first for the Royal Harbour which was completed around 1790.
I did manage to get down there and do a quick sketch
Very tricky balancing of pad pen brush paint, I will try and get down to the crosswall with some sort of seat tomorrow, all that view of Ramsgate and no seats on the crosswall facing the town.
