Powerboat Week

The Ramsgate Powerboat Grand Prix returns to Ramsgate this weekend.

The programme of racing over the two days will include the powerful V24 boats, which can reach 80 miles an hour in the water, the RIB's (rigid inflatable boats) and F2's, all of which will be competing for points in the British National Offshore Powerboat Championship.

There'll also be hovercraft and junior racing in three different classes in this year's event organised by Thanet Council, Ramsgate Town Partnership and the All Hallows Yacht Club, Ramsgate Royal Harbour.
