You might get away with it all your life, but IMHO there is a marked increase in risk of something going wrong when you add a beach into the mix. Not least of which is you don't know what the conditions are going to be when you recover. It might be all nice & calm with a gentle offshore breeze in the morning & blowing a hooley on a rising tide in the PM. My previous advice still stands, don't do it. I've come a cropper 3 times when launching/recovering boats, & it's always been on a beach, never again, it ain't worth it.
Just my 2 penneth, but you did ask😄
