Hurrah! Proof yet again that Ramsgate is the isle's premier town, with news today that a fast ferry service will be operating out of our lovely port from spring this year!
Euroferries' state of the ark, er, art 98m high speed ferry will whisk foot passengers, coaches and cars to Boulogne in just 75 minutes, where they'll be able to enjoy the Nausicaa National Sea Experience Centre, a new super-duper casino, shopping, great food, and fantastic motorways connecting with the rest of Europe.
Of course we'll be expecting floods of Frenchies to make the trip the other way to enjoy our derelict motor museum, clapped out casino, half shut high street, Thorley food and poorly-maintained A road out of here.

Update: July 2010 and still no sign of 'em!
