RIB trip to Ramsgate and the Goodwin sands in Kent

Goodwin Sands rib trip off kent

We left Rye Harbour in Sussex at lunch time to head for Ramsgate Marina in Kent. From ther we would head out to the Goodwin Sands for the evening low spring tide. It was a 0.1 meter tide which is very low. When we got out to the sands the bar was massive a good two meters out of the water.

A couple of the customers in the pic above on the charter got out and had a walk around the vast expanse of sand full of seals and other wildlife. It was a fantastic sunset. Being 5 miles in the channel with nobody else around is a great experience.

When we completed the 40 mile journey back to Rye Harbour past Dover Marina, Dungeness and round the firing range at Lydd we found the huge spring tide at Rye covering the car park. No cars in there this time, there sometimes are. 100 mile round trip and all the customers enjoyed it.
