Does anyone know if Whitehaven has a slipway, can only see a crane on the marina site and I've yet to hear back from them regards the slip?

Just checked Boatlaunch- there appears to be a slip in the harbour, no idea if it's linked to the marina or not.

Edit - just looked at the satelite pic - looks like at least one slip in the harbour, possibly two. You will need to lock out tho', so I guess you;re talking +/- a couple of hours either side of high water......

Why not give them a call?

Emailed them yesterday and had a look at the site and couldn't see a slip?

Scroll down to the three small pics, the one on the left is a satellite map, zoooooom in, and when you get the whole harbour filling the frame, it's at the root of the second leg form the left (the one with the spaceship parked at the end)

There's definetly a slip down the RH side of that pier, and the big blob between it and the "1st on the left" finger might be a huge slip - I think the white dots may be a load of dinghies launching.

Having said that, their answer will be a lot more definitive!

I was having another look at the slips in norn iron ... Killough Harbour has a good slip and may indeed be nearer than coming down from Bangor or Donaghadee ( might be a bit more ok for a DL Landy also!! )

I haven't used this slip before so I'll try and get a race down there some day this week and have a look. No chance of launching at the moment - the boat is up your way Willik in the shed for the winter.

Anyone else used Killough before?

The shed with the new 200 annual property tax?

Killough is certainly closer and would knock at least 40nm off the return trip, which is a lot of jerry cans Obviously you'll look at the tides before checking the slip and if this jaunt goes off there's a few beers owing to you for research fees!

Now, if I can work out which shed it is...

Tonymac/willk,

Why not try Ardglass?
Thats even nearer.

Correction.

Gents, you have obviosly looked at Ardglass and have decided to reject it.
Would you be so kind as to let me know the reasons for this?

Tonymac wasn't keen. I've never checked the launch/parking there so am deferring to local knowledge . I walked the town and port as part of a Maritime Archeology fieldtrip once upon a time and I seem to recall that it was a fine wee port. What's your experience of it been like, Brian?

OK I'll look at both this week. There had been some talk of increased fees in Ardglass bit I'll check it out.

As for what shed Willk - you'll be lucky!! Have you counted them all? I'll give you a clue - it's white!

BTW there'd be a greater chance of getting the TV license - an that's slim!
