Depends how far you want to travel by RIB. I would stay West of Bournemouth as it will be very busy, so would recommend Baiter Park in Poole. £9 for the day, but it is a long shallow slip, so you will have to detach trailer from car at waters edge and push into water by hand to launch & recover. Be there early as it gets very busy with jet skis. Stick to 10kt speed limit in harbour.
The only other place I would recommend is the slip in Weymouth. A very good steep concrete slip. Only space for parking trailer, you have to put car into another car park, which can be a pain. Cost could end up as high as £15. Depending on sea state, take about 1-2 hours to get to Bournemouth.
The Vulcan is flying!! Saturday only
Will be there myself on Sunday, hope to see you
