I'll be driving back from Wales on Sunday 2nd May and as I'll be going right past Chepstow it would be rude to not dive there, but I'll need a buddy if anyone is interested?

Shameless bump - seems no one wants to dive with me :(

There are about 6 folks from our club (Gloster Divers) going to NDAC on Sunday. I can't offer to buddy you as I've agreed to watch an instructor teach in prep for my OWIC course. I'll ask the folks coming and see if anyone is short a buddy.
What time are you planning to get there? How many dives do you want to do? How deep do you want to go? Is there anything you want to see? I think one guy was looking to get there for opening time (8am?) and get an early dive in to about 25m.

I've got a canon G10 in an ikelite housing and an ikelite DS51 strobe.

To be honest, apart form the raw capability I preferred my old canon ixus with a fish eye video light. The Ikelite housing is very bulky and it is taking me a while to learn how to use the strobe. With the video light I could see what I'd get before hitting the shutter. I'm learning slowly though.

gpj, mjh - good to see you yesterday. Hope you have warmed up from the chilly water. I've shoved my photos from the day on flickr at: NDAC Chepstow - a set on Flickr
Mike, GPJ was nice to meet both of you too

Sorry my dog was so grumpy - usually she only growls at my ex-husband :)

Think she was tired from her 9 hour walk the day before up Pen y Fan and fed up at being made to sleep in a tent.
