Ramsgate Royal Harbour Marina is situated on the southeastern corner of the English coast and is a popular stopover point for those sailing to and from mainland Europe. The harbour is well equipped with modern facilities, including a 40-tonne boat hoist and dedicated fuel barge offering both petrol and diesel. The 'Royal' in the name dates back to 1821, when King George IV gave Ramsgate the right to use this title. The marina hosts events including the Powerboat Grand Prix in July and Ramsgate Regatta Week in August. The marina is in walking distance of the town and its cosmopolitan seafront bars and restaurants.
