July 05 Newsletter


August 05

Well Winter didn't seem to happen at all this year. The conditions have been great and the Sunday morning shore dives have been as busy as ever (of course, Callum's amazing bbq skills may have something to do with that). Don't worry folks, only joking, Cal has been banned from cremating the snags! The Wednesday Night Nutters (Rob, Greg and Myles) are still going strong, in fact the core group is growing. The International Whaling Commission are considering a "Save the Prawn" campaign in light of the fact that the boys caught four last week.

Upcoming Events!!!!

Jelly by Angie StittSaxon Ranger Trip - Angie led the Dolphin Scuba club divers trip to the wreck of the Saxon Ranger (off the coast of Rockingham) on 31st July. Sea conditions were great with clear sunny skies. The group did two dives, the first on the Saxon Ranger where viz was a little disappointing but the second dive on the D9 wreck more than made up for it.
