Awards have been presented to the winners of the most festive displays at Ramsgate harbour.
Boat owners and businesses at the Arches have created their annual fantastic light displays which will stay lit until the new year.
The winners were announced yesterday (December 21) at the Royal Temple Yacht Club:
Stan Jacobs Trophy: RNLI Lifeboat Dora Foster McDougal
Yachts: First- Oyster; Second- Blown Away; Third- Stay Young
Cruisers: First- Gloriana; Second- Annie B; Third- Princess Aloha
Barges: First- Cory; Second- Fryslan; Third- Seredipidy
Arches: First- Something Fishy; Second- Greek Arch; Third- ShipShape
Competition organiser and boat owner Martin Morgan said: “Boat owners in Ramsgate have done the town proud with an amazing display of lights in the Royal Harbour.
“This year was made all the more spectacular by the addition of possibly the country’s most sparkly RNLI Trent Class Lifeboat. All of this was done despite probably the worst windy December for years.
“The lights have been judged and at the Royal Temple Yacht Club last night the winners of the four categories received their trophies from the Deputy Mayor Barbara Young. All the boat owners who took part should feel justly proud of the joy they have given to the many many visitors who have attended the harbour over the past weeks. Many boats will remain lit until the new year.”
