slipways in Belgium / France

Can anyone shed some light on a good slipway in Belgium / France where one can launch a 9 mtr rib and cross over to the UK (Dover area) and head for Cowes (Ribex2004)

Have tried Boatlaunch but only St Malo is shown. I am counting on perhaps local knowledge from French/Belgium members

The best one in Belgium is probably the one in the harbour (for leisure boats) of Zebrugge.
It`s a great one, 40m wide and perfect angle of the slipway.

Try Dunkerque, a favourite British departure point!!

Slipway at Port du Grande Large Dunkerque (port est)
Tel: 03.28.63.23.00

Buy a copy of Reeds Nautical Almanac
Gives Tide data and harbour/marina info+plans from North Denmark to Gibraltar including UK & Eire.

Have a look at http://www.capbreizh.com. Slipways are called "cale" or "cale maritime" in french.
If anyone feels like translating some of this information, you would make boatlaunch and a lot of boat owners very happy.
