Scarborough - launching

Looking to do some days out off the east coast and wondered if anyone had gone out from Scarborough?

Prefer the option to launch somewhere in a harbour rather than tractor launch into the North Sea as even on many days when you could easily go out there is often troublesome waves breaking on the beach which you can do without when either going out or coming back in.

I've never launched at Scarborough as the slip is in the middle of the town & parking trailer etc is a pain. Whitby imho is a much better option, good wide slip available about 4 hours either side of HW depending on range. Marina close by so you can tie up & go into town for a couple of hours. plenty of space & easy parking for trailer unless it's particularly busy. The only downside is cost, 20.20 last year for slip & parking, but hey ho! nobody said boating was cheap!!

Ey, but 28 at Brid. I did wonder what parking would be like. Hope to get out from Whitby a few times too.

Parking can be a pain but you can use the Scarborough harbour crane near the Yacht Club Not sure what the fee is), better than putting the trailer in the water. But don't go at low tide because the water is missing.
