west cowes...
if you are bringing it accross from the mainland launch over there!
Otherwise Kevin Moles may let you launch there - they have a nice slip.

Or use the slip next to what was Spencers Wharf down by the floating bridge, it is very narrow and a reasonably testing reverse but not too steep and slightly out of the tide (nearly all slips have the strong tide crossing them).
