St Abbs (New Asgard) June 2019

A glorious weekend with the most divers from our club ever. 15 on Saturday and 14 on Sunday. Used all the accommodation and both waves !

Black Carr, West Hurker, Glanmire and Tye’s Tunnel. Great dives with a bit of current running round the headland. Interesting.

Wolf Fish, two Octopus and the usual crawling suspects. Viz fine at 4-5m. Water temperature was a warm 10 degrees. 50 minute dives from some with 40 minutes the norm.

Great accommodation and boat with Paul and Rachel at Rock House and aboard Shore Diver.

Stoney Cove June 20th

A very pleasant day for myself & Steve. 3 Dives, quiet, very little rain and some sun.

Viz was the 5-6m advertised ! After the appalling viz at Capernwray on Saturday (1m in many places) a really pleasant surprise.

Defib training completed 29th April 2019

Thanks very much to Rich who gives us the whys and hows for our new defib (AED).
We are all more confident about approaching use of a defib and what it can and cannot do.
We will take ours on all dive trips and training.

If any members want to arrange another session then please get in touch.

Come on in, the water’s lovely

I had my first visit to the training quarry (Capernwray) yesterday and it was good. Water was 7 degrees C but felt warmer (Matt’s computer said 8). Surface temperature was 14ish, so very nice. Visibility was OK, not the outstanding of the website ! But I saw two of the big Sturgeon, so very happy.

Time to start booking your open water dates either for training or just to get wet !

Let me know, ideally for rest of month, April and May
