Well with a good 4x4 it would be possible to launch at Abereiddy, which is 100yrd from the blue lagoon, But access will be very restricted during the event, and the roads there are very narrow, so best trailer launch sites would be Fishguard. Kayaks and sibs should be easy enough to launch at Abereiddy though.
Porthgain is also just around the headland, but will probably be jam packed.

I would use Fishguard ( Goodwick ) personally . Wide concrete slip accessible hightides +/- 3hours ( possibly a little more , but take local advice on that ! )

Several designated parking bays for cars plus trailers , cost 1.50 per day in 2015 . Launching itself is free .

You probably can get closer but immediate local launching will be both size and tide restricted . Goodwick is a pleasant spin away round Strumble Head .

Watch out for families on the slip and the rocky Pembs. coast .

Should be a lovely day out if weather is good !

I see DHF has just beaten me to it........
