On Saturday 3rd August, 200 volunteers will help Whitstable Maritime present a full day’s entertainment and experiences on land and sea with 50 local and national organisations.
Craft filling the harbour will range from a Bronze Age replica boat to the latest high-tech racing dinghy. Visitors will be able to board vessels varying in size from a 250-foot coaster to a 20-foot lugger that you could trail behind a car.
Visiting boats include powerful 60 foot patrol boats belonging to the Border Force and Inshore Fisheries Conservation; the Margate All Weather Lifeboat; several Thames barges and Old Gaffers, and the local fishing fleet. A 45 foot ex-naval launch belonging to the Maritime Volunteer Service is due
to offer boat rides.
