I am bringing 6 Swedes to dive the Farnes  and St Abbs from Friday 19th to Thursday 25th September. We will be staying and diving with Farne Diving Services in Beadnell over the weekend 19th-21st. Some of the Southern Shandy Drinkers (Lou and Caroline and Matt and Adam) and Steve W will be joining us in Beadnell.  If anybody living locally or who will be in the area at that time fancies meeting us in the pub one evening for a drink and a chin-wag, it would be great to meet you. You can reach me on my mobile (0046 702 692559) from midday Friday 19th (except when I’m diving, of course).
The Swedish contingent will go on to St Abbs on the Sunday evening for 4 days diving there. We wil no doubt be in one of the local  pubs every evening from Sunday 21st to Thursday 25th and would  again love to meet anybody who is in the area. In fact, there will only be 7 of us on Billy Aitchison’s boat, so if anyone fancies joining us for a dive or two any day  from the Monday to the Thursday we’d be glad to have you with us. Ring Billy (01890771288) in that case.

John.
You probally know this already but if you're diving the Farnes to see the seals stay shallow 6-10 mtrs.
The best 'dive' l had on our recent trip was surface swimming into one of the inlets to the hopper, with seals on the rocks, which then slipped into the water 2-3 mtrs in front of us, then they swam under us, nudging/nibbling my daughters fins and surfaced behind us. Awesome.

l wonder if your sweedish mates will understand the Geordie lingo?
Oh l forgot Steve will be there as an interpreter.

Have fun.

Thanks for the tip about the seals, Howard. I've read Ron Young's excellent book and also exchanged several e-mail messages with Ron, who has been very helpful, so I think I've got a fairly good picture of the diving in the Farnes. Yes, it's a good thing Steve will be with us to interpret  
Anyway, we're all greatly looking forward to our trip. Pray for good weather for us!

Nigel: That'd be great. Check with Billy that it's OK with him for safety's sake.
Steve: Probably see you in the pub in the evenings. Make yourself known. Even better, ring me on my mobile (number above).

Steve,
I'm confused! ight way up for twins would be inverted but your picture shows them upside down i.e. Valves up  


So which way are they? Or are they only right way up when you're wrong way up?
