I see you have a 5m boat so folly is ok to launch from just beaware of MLWS as there can be a big drop off at the end of the slip , great place for having a beer after a day on the water. River Medina has launch sites by Newport Town Quay but tidal so need to plan your trip .
Next to Shepherds is a slip only problem is parking car and trailer after .
Yarmouth you can launch from with ease and car park is just across the road .
The advantage of trailering is you can see alot of the Island coastline by using different launch sites . Ventnor is a pretty place but the Harbour is tidal so need to time your trip same goes for Bembridge but not impossible if you plan your day in advance.
