I learnt to dive August this year and have done 25 dives since, 24 in the UK and my first dive before I was qualified in Barbados a couple of years previous!
I dive most weeks even in very poor visibility as I'm addicted .
I'm going to the red Sea on a diving holiday end of January in sharm and I'm really looking forward to some decent vis if it's anywhere near as good as Barbados I will be really pleased  

I'm Padi trained and belong to a BSAC club with a rib in Torquay and hard boat in Plymouth, favourite wreck "James Egan Lane" , although I haven't done many wrecks as yet!
Hoping to do plenty in the red Sea, very excited about doing the Thistlegorm !

That'll be 'Dunribbin' then.  I'm surprised nobody else has been here to welcome you aboard, perhaps they're all jealous because we've got the best diving down here

<font color='#000080'>Welcome aboard Steve mate,

Nice to see your not shy about what diving you've done. Looks like you'll be racking them up to a hundred before you know it. Sounds like a great club too. I'm sure not many clubs can boast hard boats? As Bren said get in amongst the posts and join in the dive trips and outings. There is a lot to be learned from this forum with more experience than you could shake a stick at. I have learn't loads since I joined and when they say no question is too silly they mean it. Look forward to reading your posts and perhaps meeting up on a trip.

Enjoy the Red Sea, I'm not jealous in the least  ..  


Happy surfing,

Dave C

Another 'local yokel' then. Welcome Steve.

Didn't know Wellington & Taunton kept a rib too though, I thought 'Dunribbin' was seriously named.

Aye very good Mr P. When you think about it, you know that isn't really true!

Welcome to the boards Steve.

hi James
Oh yes I'm definitely mad  

hopefully I should be doing more in the next four months but that's mainly because of my diving holiday in the red Sea end of January!
Although the Seas starting to get a bit chilly now  but that won't stop me currently 11 degrees drops to 8 degrees on the south coast January February time (I don't think there is any more room for extra cloths under my drysuit)

Yes howard but that is because scotland is such a verry small place and it is  hidden away so well in the cold north.
