July-Aug-Sept 2014 The weather's improving so we're diving out of Sea Palling again. Viz is very variable from 15m early in the month to a more standard 5m on the 20th July. Make sure you come on a Thursday night to the NCI as the places go quickly. We normally wait until the last minute to announce the trip so we can be sure the weathers going to be favorable.

Wrecks dived include a couple of unknowns, the Ethel (24m) , the Aster (32m) and the Artemisias (24m) twice as the shot got left behind after the first dive . Vis on Sunday (27th July) was a respectable 8-10m with a playful seal encountered on the wreck. Aug 2 we dived the Walkure with similar viz but with a rough ish sea. (See Dive Trips page for other dive site details)

14 Jun 2014 Plymouth trip. We are taking our own boats so we can choose dive sites etc. We are hoping to dive a couple of sites in the 40m range on this trip to give more advanced divers some new things to see.

Diving air or Nitrox, food & drink all available within 5-10mins walk from the slipway where we launch the boats. Contact Dave S for details. See Dive Trips page for dive site details

THE WRECKAGE AT STONEY COVE, LEICESTERSHIRE

Something of interest on our next visit. The oak remains of the Tudor Wreck below. A few of us visited the wreck on our last visit. The anchor and 2 large sections of hull are there. If you are interested in ship design, you can see the oak frames and the timber dowels fastening the planks to the frames. Even crayfish hiding in some of the empty dowel holes! Please don’t try to remove parts of the timbers as they are fragile & bits are falling off … it is over 400 years old!
