Best place to launch between Christchurch and Poole

Anyone know of a great place to launch (non slipway) in the Christchurch to Poole area?

Need to be able to get my car close by to inflate as I don't have launch wheels.

Hi
Not sure if this a new or old post but anyway i live in bournemouth and with wheels you can launch from lots of places, i just go of the beach and park up nearby, you just gotta look about there isnt really an official place.

Hope this helps a bit

Unofficial place are good, know the area well so just hoping for a recommendation on an ideal location? Where do you launch from?

Sopers Lane Slipway Xch - lots of space & if you time it right and stayy off to one side no fuss and a few M from car to water.

You could always try Avon Beach at Mudeford, Christchurch. Car Park backs straight on to the beach.
There is a small slip or gravel to launch on the inside of Christchurch Harbour just next to the lifeboat station at Mudeford Quay.
The car park at Hengisbury Head is about 100m from the beach.
Ther is a car park at Southborne near Bistro on the Beach. The path down is about 100m with an incline.
There is a car parking area right along the sea front, accessed from the road down to Boscombe Pier gives you access directly on to beach.
Nothing much then until you get to Poole.
A small car park at Branksome, with direct access to beach.
A small car park at the end of Shore Road, about 50m from beach.
Then the main (large) car park at Sandbanks, with direct access (50m) to beach.
Alternatively, park on the road on the inside of the harbour, and launch from there just over a low wall. Depending on tide, straight into the water or a long walk out.
In the harbour, the car park at Baiter Park is always an option.
If launching from any of the beaches, obey the speed limit inside the yellow bouys (5kts) and keep a very good eye out for persons in the water.

Thanks Peter, I checked sopers lane out the other day and actually launched from the otherside of the river, from wick lane, it was very easy and a bit quiter than sopers lane. Wick lane not great for bigger boats but ideal for me.

Thanks 250kts, lots of info there for me to look into. I know and have thought about most of those areas as I know the area very well. Baiter is nice and easy and probably as good a place as any to be able to park and launch. I have been considering branksome and reckon I might try that early one evening with the lads for some early eve fun when the carpark will be quieter as I know it's limited on parking. Just gonna google map some of the other suggestions as well, much appreciated!
