Ramsgate Maritime Museum with Betty in front

Tuesday 10. August 2010




days events

After a stroll to buy a prepaid sim card for cheap local phone calls and above all affordable internet access I walk over to the Harbour Office in order to inquire about moving Betty to the inner harbour, because there is less swell, but most of all to save on the mooring fees, in case the weather forces me to stay for a few days. This does not seem to be a problem and at high tide I motor the boat through the lock and into a berth in the far corner of the Inner Harbour, where the Ramsgate Maritime Museum is situated. Regrettably the museum had to close its doors in 2010 due to financial pressures and it is unclear, when and if it will open again. But there are still a number of beautiful boats moored near the museum, Betty smack in the middle of them.
Today's remaining hours are spent between the boat and the marina facilities with its huge commercial washer and drier, getting the sea water out of the clothing in three long settings. By the evening I have everything clean and shipshape again and ready for a departure early tomorrow for the sail around the North Foreland and into the Thames Estuary.
