Pool session Fitzalan – 7:30 – 8:30pm - as ever if you need kit please let me or Steve know asap.
Please be aware Cardiff City are playing home on Tuesday. If you time it right, you should be ok, especially getting back out as they will still be playing, but do allow extra time . As the Barons Court has closed, we will be trying out the Cedar Tree, down by Aldi’s in Cardiff Bay. Its right on the main routes, so should help with the drive home
Cosmeston, the mist rolled in, flattening the water and making it seem clear at the side. It was just a ruse. Without any sun, it was as dark as ever, cold enough to make the dive short and sweet ( well, short)
Pencil in 30/31st March weekend , potentially for shore diving in Brixham. Possibly a one day trip (Saturday). It's a good neaps and I'm reliably informed parking and access into the bay are easy. Check out brixham dive shack on facebook if you want to get a feel for the place. For those newer members without a sea dive under their belt, this may be the time to get started!
Cossie and a Curry
Cossie and a curry, looking at Wednesday 20th March, followed by a curry at Mo's (by Penarth railway station). As I will need to book, I need to know if you are coming for the curry and/or the dive. Diving isn't compulsory, however be aware that you will need appropriate equipment including a lit smb and a torch plus back up if you want to take part. If you don't have the equipment, ask and we will see what can be begged or borrowed. Friends and family welcome.
Next Saturday the boat is getting its yearly service. Weather permitting, we may be able to do some "sea trials" on Cardiff Bay on Sunday. If anyone is interested in coming along as a refresher, or just to have a go, let me know. There will be costs involved for both launching and fuel and will be split between those taking part.
