Thanks Peter.

What about Friday? Same times? Unfortunately, I have to be back home for a wedding on Sunday this year, so will miss the big event.

I took a look at google maps earlier and saw another slipway, with a huge car park just inside the harbour entrance on the North side. Is this a public slipway?

Friday - about half an hour earlier. The big car park is Mudeford - decent pub etc, but will charge to launch and to park , but you'll get away with being there overnight far easier, but will be much busier on Sat with a decent forecast and bank holiday weekend.

Thanks again - just checked some old threads and it appears there's a limited launch window for the slip at Mudeford, so I may well go for the one in the park, or even Hythe, as suggested by matt h.

I'm only really looking at getting on the water for the Friday race and will go back home either Friday evening or Saturday am. Will you be watching the race on Friday?
