The launch side is flat and shallow for smooth jibes and quick beach starts. On the opposite shore, the water flattens out into chop.
Rig & Launch
The road ends directly at the launch site.Beside it, there's a grass rigging area located in front of the parking area.

Generally watch out for the barge lane which runs near the launch site !
