hi all,  35 yr old bloke been diving for about 5 yrs now (ssac) mainly lakes. is there anyone else here from cumbria or is it just a place for "strange" yorkshire people ?.(well who in their right mind would dress in rubber ,throw themselves in freezing cold murky water,swim down 30 or 40 mtrs for pleasure?).

<font color='#000080'>As said before,  not just strange Yorkshire people.

Strange people from all over  


There is quite a strong southern contingent and Scottish contingent.  Not to mention some really far flung places like Malta, Sweden and even Glasgow !!

Have a look at the following for a quick straw poll that was run not long ago.

Hey Mark,

A warm welcome to YD mate!

I'm in Manchester myself, so not too far from you.

Andy 'DalesDiver' Hayhurst is in Cumbria though, and we dive with him very regularly - and you're more than welcome to join us on any dip as we dive the Lakes very regularly (Wastwater, Conniston, etc.) too.

So please get in amongst it and feel free to join us - we can always find you a buddy if you need one and will dive in what ever 'comfort-range' (depth etc.) that you feel happy with.

Cheers,
