Camber - low tide

Just realised I'll be launching about low tide tomorrow at the camber.

I've not launched or recovered there at such a low state of tide before.

Is it possible?

yes it is possible, does get very slipperly tho at the bottom with all the weed that grows on it. Should be fine with your wagon.

Thanks Rich

Am thinking about trying to launch about 9am now, about an hour before Low tide, but knowing my lot we'll be running a bit late!

Slippery is an understatement. One time while launching zippy with Tim I managed to fall on my rear end and slid down the slipway. It's also fun trying to climb into the trailer when its that slippy!

By the look of your profile, strap line, and obvious obsession with drink, I'd suggest you were pissed at the time.

Managed to launch no problem.

He's a University of Portsmouth Student who is mates with Tim. You can take that as read!
