I've still got 8 spaces on Dive 125 out of Sovereign Harbour in Eastbourne. The plan is to do the Persania on the Saturday, a large wreck that sits upright in about 50m. The deck is about 45m. Then an early start on Sunday will allow us to do 2 wrecks at slack. These will be shallower, a maximum of 35m.

The boat's got a lift etc and the parking's free in the harbour and near to the boat.

Current list:

Saturday:
1) JasonP
2) Ash *SPACE*
3) Tilesey
4) Graham Smith
5) Jimbob
6) Graham Smith +1
7) Sarah Evans
8) Sarah Evans +1
9) Sarah Evans +2
10) Swampy

Sunday:
1) JasonP
2) Ash *SPACE*
3) Tilesey **SPACE**
4) Swampy
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)
10)

Doing any of those people who expressed an interest when they were drunk on Tuesday actually want spaces?
Jason,
"well refreshed" is a more pleasing description. I was interested until I found I am already committed to not diving that weekend :(

If you can split the list into two days that I will take at least two 2 spaces Saturday for the Persania, probably 3.

Would be -

Saturday -


1. Graham Smith
2. Jimbob
3. Graham Smith +1 (TBC)

OK Graham, I've made your 3 spaces definite on the first day and asked Dave if he can send out the details to his list. Hopefully we can find some more takers.

I guess I should also point out that Sunday, which will be a two wreck day, won't be as deep as the Saturday. Maximum will be 35m, so if the depth's putting people off, signing up for just the Sunday is an option.

Firm plan is as follows:
SAT 5th June - Mid channel Persiana (45m) - 8:15am load
SUN 6th June - 2 wreck day - Rydall Hall (30-40m) then Alaunia (35m) -
5:45am load (ropes off 6:05)

Is Sunday deffo happening? It's bloody early!
Yes, it's definitely happening. And yes, there aren't many people on the boat. And stop moaning. We need to leave early to catch both tides.

Anyone else fancies it, the description of Sunday's wrecks is:
"the HUGE collier and General cargo carrier Rydal Hall and the Cunard Liner ALAUNIA"
