The slip at the end of Beacon Quay Haldon Pier is good.

Alternatively you could launch & recover at Brixham - avoid 1 hr either side low tide. Thay don't seem to be collecting fees there this summer.

Good evening, firefly is correct the new slip in Torquay is very good. D2 marine could also look after your trailer for you if you are planning on leaving the rib in the water. Hope that helps.... Might see you out there!

I've been lucky this season then! Launched & recovered 3 times at weeekeneds when tides in Dart were not favourable -no-one around monitoring slip / taking fees. Was surprised, I''m quite (well not really) happy to pay to use facilities!

RIBase
Used the slip last month, you launch, leave the trailer on the trailer park then move the car up to one of teh towns car parks. The car park overlooking the slip was 7 for the day. You can lock the trailer to a chain than runs the length of the park or just stick a hitch lock on, or leave it without. It's a barriereied area.

I'm heading to brixham next week end and am intending to use the main brixham slip.

I have looked at the Torquay slip before and it looks good with plenty of parking but I'll be camping near to brixham
