Just looked at Baiter Park on Google maps, looks great! Can you simply turn up & launch from the beach or do I have to pay to use the slipway?
Isn't Brownsea Island private?

It's possibly fine for somebody with a bit of knowledge but as a newbie I diddnt want to put the rugrats at risk.

You only pay and display hence if no trailer it's free, no real beach there thou ... Brownsea is national trust think you can land there in certain areas
