Another good weekend for the Sub C Divers. This time Dave arranged the Saturday 6th, and this was to launch from white cottage Caernarfon and trek across to the Lynn peninsula. We were looking to dive the wreck of the Gwynfaen off Porth Dinllaen. A fantastic opportunity for some boat handling down the Menai, down the coast of the peninsular shrouded in mist looked stunning. A long trek of approx 17 NSM saw us arrive at the wreck site only to find conditions not too favourable for an exposed wreck.
Newly qualified BSAC Ocean Diver and Sub C Divers member Mandy tells us all about her first experience diving off of the club RHIB.
After the success of last year's carnival, we're back for Atherton Carnival 2019 on Sunday 23rd June 2019!
A brilliant insight into how it feels to cox a full dive from start to finish. With highlights on the challenges of doing so and what a successful diving weekend it was!
The club celebrated the end of the year's diving at Leigh Rugby Union Club. This is an annual event enjoyed by all and we were proud to say that it was our best attended event in years. At the ball, we hand out numerous club awards and the qualifications that people have achieved throughout the year.
Ever since I first laid my eyes on the sidemount system I knew that was how I wanted to dive. Sub C Divers hosted an evening with Sidemount Bob himself, RAID Instructor Trainer and Director of Training Garry Dallas put together a fantastic and eye opening evening last week.
This was the latest trip I had organised around Anglesey. Again planning around Neap tides. It was an early start, Bull Bay for 08:00 hrs. As this was a day dash for some they were up and out from home around 05:00 hrs😅... I had prepped the club rib the day before along with my kit. I awoke to a dark n grey sky, wind blowing around 4/5
Preparation and planning started earlier in the year when our DO - Alf Draper suggested he was putting a trip to Oban and I should certainly consider the opportunity if the arrangements come together. Once this was confirmed, Michelle, Xander and I booked on this trip. We were joined by Gerry, Mike Court and Alf. Tuesday before the grand depart we carried out boat Maintenance, changing bearings, spark plugs, checking everything that we needed was in the boat, tested. Many thanks to the team who turned out to help us.
Our latest Ocean Diver trainees have made it across the finish line. Their enthusiasm and drive has paid off and they are now officially our newest qualified members. Well done guys!
