We started off well, skirting our way around the Thames barges down the Orwell, and around Kentish Knock BB started sailing herself. The wind dropped soon after, however, and we were forced to motor sail for four hours. To make up for this we threw an old line out the back of the boat and as we approached Ramsgate we got a bite! It could only be mackerel so as I pulled in the line it went taught and then snapped. Arse.
Ramsgate is not a bad port and certainly recommended for an overnight stay. There’s not much to it but we got a decent Thai meal down our gullets plus plenty more wine.
