Anyone launched from staithes

Had one or two trips up to whitby this year . Easy launch and parking . From there we did go round to staithes for a beer . I know the harbour dries and On the two occasions I went I could did not see an official . I have some friends staying there after Christmas and thought we may be able to launch and then move the car and trailer back upto the car park .
Any experience?

Both, although I have not heard from him for a while. I think he works offshore.

For what it's worth, I think staithes is a non starter. I normally launch from Whitby.

Thanks for your reply . I suspected that it might not be practical . I think I did see a slipway but didn't pay much attention at the time as I didn't think I would ever want to launch from there .

Also the lack of response suggests that nobody uses it unless of course everyone has succumbed to helping out with Christmas and are not allowed on the forum !!

I used to work in that area and know there is a slip next to the pub, but it's only a high water one, I sure. There is one on the cowbar side as well right at the end of the road to the break water

I think I saw the slipway and your right it looked like a high water one . I wish I had been more switched on at the time and asked but I was playing the ' have a go in the boat ' role at the time . I think the question I need to know is whether you can just turn up and launch and how much tide we would need .

If none has a definite answer I may chance it on the day or bottle it and go for whitby .

When are you planning on going out Steve? Drop me a line and we may be able to hook up.

There are quite a lot of things that are going to influence or indeed prevent this trip . We have some friends staying in staithes on Friday/Saturday 2nd & 3rd so the Friday would be my favourite . Having said that if the swell and weather is good on another day and family events allow I may just grab the opportunity and take anyone who is free to join me .

Do you know what days you could potentially go ?
