The new issues of our legendary newsletter, Hullo, is now available here. Many thanks to editor Don Wilson. There's a great story from Matt Newsome about diving with sharks in Chester (yes, really), oh, and extreme horse riding of course. Go on, click, you know you want to.
Club member Paul Caldwell is looking to organise a trip to the Farnes in May. Contact us using the contact form to find out more, or contact Paul direct if you have his details.
Paul has pencilled in with Sovereign Divers (http://www.sovereigndiving.co.uk/diving.html) a dive hard boat (toilet, coffee, lift, oxygen etc) for the weekend of May 10th and 11th 2014 for Farnes diving. I've dived with them before and they are excellent.
The boat is £450 per day taking min 6 people, max 12. We need 6 people to go hard on the trip asap and obviously others welcome and need confirming asap. Any spaces left over can be filled by Sovereign but there is no guarantee we will get the full 12, although there is a good chance. Sovereign is very well known. Usually 2 dives per day leaving Seahouses around 9 and returning mid afternoon depending in tide etc. Usually on the sunday we finish by 14.00. This gives time sat pm to see the sights, beer garden and filling tanks. They may be able to do 3 dives on the saturday but will cost extre.
Accommodation. We can organise this through them at £30 pp pn B+B. In the past many of gone up to Seahouses on the saturdayaiming to arrive no later 0800 harbour side, approx 3.30 hrs to be safe from East Yorkshire. there is plenty of other accommodation locally but it can get booked. There is also a campsite/caravan site.
Food. Plenty of choice. I propose reserving a large table sat eve at a very good Curry house or Pizza place, both are excellent.
Other dates. Sovereign can do a boat weekend of April 26/27 but not the accomodation.
