<font color='#0000FF'>The group that was penciled in for this weekend,their D/O didn't want to subject his newly quailified sports divers on dives involving SPRING tides ( took him 6 weeks to decide after giving him times etc etc ) and has made arrangements in taking them to SS Stoney Cove.

The LEAVE times are ( in brackets are the dive letters to make it easier )

9/4   (A)1030 & (B)1630       10/4   ©1115 & (D)1715        11/4   (E)1314 & (F)1815    12/4    (G)0700 & (H)1330

Dive F i would imagine is a night dive.
Leave times may be earlier , if you want to do a wreck more than 40 minutes away from Dover.
Air is available at the Dover Sub Aqua Club, compressor operator must be a BSAC member .
Accomadation is cheap at the SEAMANS MISSION   01304 241693   just let them know that you are a DIVER. I'll get more close by in the area over the next few days and keep you posted .

Hi Andy

Put me down for 9/4 (friday) both dives and 12/4 (monday) both dives. Ta!

I presume the compressor is double filtered for Nitrox cylinders?

Andy,
I'm interested for the 12th, however I'm currently limited to 18 Metres, and have never dived in the sea in the UK. so these may not be the dives for me.

<font color='#0000FF'>Hi Simon,

Down here at Dover, there are about 5 good wrecks that are in your depth limits, One of them you could do on a snorkel, but is a cracking little dive for divers that have just finished training, I don have some people getting back to me soon , in doing this wreck and i know there will be space on the boat, If you want me to pass on details, i'm more than happy to when i get them .
I can call upon some really good sports divers here, that will be willing to give you a guided tour of some of our wrecks, but most good ones that i would put you on as a beginner into UK sea diving are bewteen 20 - 25 mts.
The wrecks will will be doing this weekend are bewteen 20 & 30 mts , and i haven't got round to planning then in full yet, as i want to please everyone and not let them do the same wreck twice. I personally feel, that this dive weekend is not really within your league as a diver , YET, but i will keep you posted on any dives which from the details you gave me , would be suited to your needs.

Andy

Andy,
Cheers of your assesment of the easter weekends dives.
If your planning a nice shallow wreck some time after the end of March (drysuit doesn't arrive 'till start of march and I reckon I need at least another 10 inland dives in it, to get familiar with one), and know of a couple of experienced divers myself and my wife can buddy with, please let me know.
