With ECR rising from the grave only to say he is going see http://eastcliffrichard.blogspot.com/2010/09/dfl-goes-btl.html something that may not be absolutely correct, time will tell. I noticed that it says on his sidebar 24-25 Ramsgate Powerboat Fest instead of getting all excited I thought I would confirm this first.
Nothing on the council’s websites but this doesn’t really mean anything much, Port Ramsgate didn’t know anything about it, so I rang the tourist information office. If you don’t mind waiting for their automated telephone to tell you about things you may not want to know about and then select from five options all of which seem to take you to the same place. You do get to a person who, yes, seems to know about local events, she/he consults a sacred text referred to as the list, oh how I wish this thing was available online.
Here is the number, it really is the only reliable way I have found to find out what’s on in Thanet 577577.
The long and the short of all this is, yes we have no powerboat weekend and I have another cup of tea, symptomatic of speaking to someone who has been trained.
Here are the pictures of the powerboat thing in 2007 http://www.thanetonline.com/pb/id6.htm
