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.

Christmas weekend and dive

Just had a great weekend at Etland House, Preston Patrick, just off junction 36 M6.

The astute amongst you will have noted that Capernwray is off junction 35 so very convenient for our Saturday dip.

Foreboding weather forecasts all week of snow and ice but in the event travelling up on Friday 14th December was easy going. The surface conditions on Saturday were not warm but nothing like the predicted -6 degree feeling with wind chill or freezing hail. It was more pleasant in the water at 8 degrees. We did have a number of wimps duck out of the diving but 4 hardy souls did have enjoyable dives in peace and quiet.

We felt well deserving of our Christmas dinner on Saturday evening.

And up for a walk in the morning sunshine on Sunday before brunch. A gentle stroll round Grange-over-Sands front in the afternoon walked off the stuffed feeling.

An excellent weekend despite being diving lite and food heavy !
