Please  email the Dive Manager to book on to ensure your place.  You are reminded that if you just turn up, you will not get turned away as long as there is room on the boat and your qualification fits in with the following- 

 

Saturday and Sunday morning dives- All qualified divers will be catered for.

 

Deep Dives- All divers must be approved by the Diving Officer to conduct Deep Dives within the club.  

 

All other dives- Depth and qualification restrictions will apply as appropriate to the dive site targeted. This is to be stated (if required) when the dive is announced to avoid disappointment. 

 

Dive Managers will advertise any other planned dives via the group email system, but please confirm with the Diving Officer first by emailing  

 

Diving Officers Report:

Sadly, after some excellent diving in previous weeks, poor weather conditions resulted in the cancellation of planned dives last week.

Please would Dive Managers promulgate information regarding their dives by email on all occasions via the group 'gaggle' address. This should include confirmation that dive is going ahead (minimum of 4 met), special requirements or limitations, changes of times, proposed sites and cancellation. Facebook is also an excellent means of communication and has the advantage that non-members can see what we are doing. This promotes the club to would-be members, so if you have the skills and opportunity please use this medium as an adjunct.

Tony Hillgrove will take on the Diving Officer role from Monday 25th June until Monday 9th July in my absence. Thank you Tony.

John Shelley and team had excellent conditions out of Tobermory, Mull. See FB for details and photos.

-

We had summery weather and for the most part light winds, for the extended Kernow weekend. Dives included the Runnel Stone and Hellopes on Friday, a whole range of sites on Saturday and back on the Hellopes Monday. Viz was 15-20m with abundant marine life, including increasing numbers of juvenile crawfish being spotted on all sites. I missed the Saturday evening entertainment but hear that it was great fun. Thanks to all who supported the event, in particular the surface support (Simon and Lynne) and trailer towing (Chris). 

-

We had four club members on last week's BSAC Technical Group Expedition to Malin Head. They are enjoying excellent conditions, with  reports of 30m viz and daylight on dives in the 60-70m range. Again, see FB for photos and reports.
