<font color='#0000FF'>Not sure about Cape, was thinking maybe the sea if the viz is anywhere near divable, maybe Abbs, maybe even Weasel loch! Maybe something a bit nearer like Beadnell (knackers hole or 'the point'? Or even a pootle around St Mary's Island (Whitley Bay) Anybody fancy a dip in the Briny? Anybody live near enough to the sea to have a peek at the viz ?  I was planning to have a look at the viz situation one night this week in preparation for the weekend so will post on this later in the week. Probably plump for Saturday rather than Sunday.

<font color='#000F22'>I was out at Portencross on Saturday.

Very shallow - out with students - but viz was very good.

Then St Abbs yesterday - viz about 7-8m at 16m.

It looks like it's gonna blow gentle Southerlies all week so the w/e looks good either coast.

Water temp a balmy 8 degrees.

Dive the sea - puddles are always second best.

Just have to fix that leaky suit or wear my spare one

Davey and I will beat the Cape on Saturday, though not early as he's collecting his suit from Diver's Whorehouse in Bradford on the way over.

Looking forward to seeing you guys there.
