There are several slipways that the public may use in Yarmouth. The largest slipway is on the corner between the South Quay and the Town Quay. It can be accessed via the Wightlink marshalling area. Users need to be mindful of the queuing traffic waiting for the ferry and also traffic leaving the ferry and proceeding towards the main road.
South of the swing bridge across the Western Yar river, on the east bank of the river, adjacent to the dinghy park there is a small slipway, that is available to the public.
Access from the shore is via the Council car park and the dinghy park. The dinghy park gate key is available from the Harbour Office.
At the Western end of the South Quay there is a small slipway close to the Harbour Office, which is steeper than the other slipways.
Other slipways are located at Harold Hayles boatyard and at the Yarmouth Sailing Club.
Slipways can be dangerous places if not used properly.
