There are two slipways at Porthcawl
The harbour one is private and you need a permit see
http://www.boatlaunch.co.uk/index.as...redfilterid=10
and the one at Newton Beach is run by Porthcawl Power Boat And Ski Club and is for members only. Details here
http://www.boatlaunch.co.uk/index.as...redfilterid=10.
Hope this helps.

Please keep us updated on new information.

Found this out for you from ppc website:


If you are not a members of Porthcawl Powerboat and Ski Club and you wish to launch your boat from the slipway when on holiday or whilst awaiting membership then you can launch on a temporary membership which costs 25 pound per week and can be purchased from Soapys laundrette Station Hill Porthcawl. Contact details can be found at the slipway. Your craft will have to be inspected before entering the water and you will have to conform to the following requirements.

To launch a boat from Porthcawl Powerboat and Ski Club you require the following:

Boat insurance with a minimum of 1 million Third Party Cover.
A flare pack (with flares in date)
Paddles (These will be of no use for moving the boat but will help to attract attention in case of an emergency)
A Whistle or air horn again to attract attention in an emergency
An anchor and rope of sufficient size to hold the boat safely
Each person in the boat must wear a recognised buoyancy aid.
Advise that you carry a bucket to bail water if the worst should happen.

Please note that as a weekly member you will not be able to use the club tractors. this means you will be relying on the goodwill and availability of club members to assist you in launching your craft.
