One more, along the coast to Edinburgh is Cockenzie & Port Seton, free launch (no one around to pay...), good condition 3/4 slip and easy trip out to Inchkeith and the other islands of the forth.

Redcar another slip onto hard sand launch in what they call the harbor which is between the scars in front of Denny dive shop and RNLI station or you can launch into the river at the back of the steel works forget the name of it now but very steep slipway.
good crab & lobsters on the scars and you can buy off the fisherman on the beach.

There are some lovely photos on the internet of beach launching incident at Redcar ;;;; just one here

The slip at South Gare is private - you have to be a member of South Gare Marine Club which is actually really good value if you are using it a few times a year. The top is steep (high tide launching) but it levels out significantly further down ,,, can be a very slippy slipway at low tide depending upon the time of year/last cleaned

I'm a member of the south gare marine club and can confirm if its a bit choppy in the tees mouth it can be interesting ( in a buy some fibreglass way) when recovering back onto your trailer

Cheers all, i'm frantically googling. Some of the scotland locations are tempting, but it's a long trek on a friday evening with the trailer, i'm going from Sheffield. Really cant risk a beach launch in the car. I've got a coupe and it wont stand a chance on the sand, dont fancy ending up like those cars at Redcar!
