Levington suffolk

Hi all, I'm looking to take my rib to levington and using the waterski area. If anyone has used this all the information you can give me about launching and where to ski would be a great help.

Launch at Suffolk yacht harbour and the ski area is two hundred metres out of the harbour. Shingly beach and places for kids to explore.

Launching ok at all tides but you will need either four wheel drive or use the cable. the only thing I'd say is launching is terrifically expensive at 25 a pop!!!

Good spot, watch out for customs wandering around. They seem to think all ribs are owned by gun runners!!!!!

Thanks all for info, can you pull up on the shingle beach? Does it get affected by wind much?
