Not launched there this year but talk to the Harbour Master, very nice bloke and has always found a spot for the truck and trailer, his office by Beach Road junction
I always launch from the last slipway, the sailing club are rag and stick only
Drive along the sea front easterly take the left where the road bends right away from the sea and keep going when you pass the sailing club keep to the left and it's about 250 yards, end of the road + slip on your left
The compound in front of you is the harbours and where they normally let me put the truck and trailer (helps to stuff a note in the lifeboat tin in the office)
Keep to the wall side of the harbour until you get towards the harbour office
Then follow the zig zag channel out to the Cardinal, its shallow either side, you may be lucky and get a fishing boat as a guide. Harbour speed limit used to end at the lifeboat house.
You’ve only got a couple of hours either side of high water if you arrive early and walk out a long beach road you can see the channel.
The new outer harbour is for the wind farm supply boats
There’s a good café on the sea front near to the harbour office, don’t use the deli unless you had 6 numbers come up on Saturday
