Launching at Itchenor tomorrow - yes very straightforward all states of the tide launching on hard ground, although to state the bl***ding obvious you are then inside the harbour and have a bit of a long speed-limited chug down to the sea....

Itchenor is probably your best bet but a bugger at high water as it starts with a gradual slope, another option is Bracklesham where the power boats launch.

True, having launched today at low water (very easy) and recovered at high water (had to push the trailer out 10-15m and use a rope of that length back to the car), Itchenor is better at low than high water, but still worked for us. Launching might be an issue with a heavy boat which is hard to push out by hand (ground is good and firm though)
