Medway sibbing

I am taking the aerotec to the medway later in the summer. A friend of mine is an archaeologist and wants to visit some sites in the estuary. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a suitable parking and launch site in the queenborough area?

Thanks

Simon

Not sure about the South side of the Thames area for launches I've been recommended two on the North side by a kayaker Holehaven*slip and Two Tree Island slip, both*24/24 and*free. You might find this website useful http://www.boatlaunch.co.uk

Cheers for the link, looks like queenborough town itself has a slip. Longest slip in the world though! https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/boatlaunchslipwayphotos/WebSitePhotos/183___Source.jpg

Need my binoculars for that one! Let us know how you get on, when the tide goes out it goes o...u....t. the slip may well be that long for good reason

Hi Simon

Minster leas has a good launch site, parking right by the ramp. Think parking is 3 for the day. Getting out late isn't that bad but pulling up the shingle beach is hard work once the tides a way out.
