We are based at Brightlingsea. You can self launch at all states of the tide for a nominal fee at the Harbour Office. Nice sheltered cruising ground or get yourself up or down the coast. Maldon, Bradwell, West Mersea, Wivenhoe, Felixstowe, Burnham all within easy cruise distance.
We store and launch at Brightlingsea Boat Park and Ride who also do PB2 courses. Check them out and ask for Malcolm. If you want to keep your feet dry Malcolm will launch and recover you for £20
Burnham yacht harbour is a good launch site but a bit of a faff getting out of the river before you can open the taps. At B'sea it's five minutes from launch to unrestricted areas.
