Do you qualify for an injury claim in Ramsgate?
Now a seaside town on the Kent coast, Ramsgate was one of the five members of the ancient confederation of the Cinque Ports and a popular seaside town during the 19th century. Ramsgate’s main industries are tourism and fishing, and its marina is one of the largest on the south east coast, containing around 700 berths. It is a popular location for sailors on account of its Channel position and facilities.
Sailing is a widely enjoyed pastime, but water can be unpredictable and dangerous so due care and attention must be taken at all times. Keeping vigilant is paramount. The best piece of sailing safety advice is to keep alert and observe one’s continually changing surroundings at all times. An attitude of preparedness is a key factor in avoiding sailing injuries.
