Can t remember if I ve done a trip report before so I thought that a day at Crappers would warrant a good start.
After being blown out at the coast , my good buddy markymark(closet city fan) and I decided a trip to Capers was a good 2nd choice(albeit we didn t actually have a 3rd)



I was contacted by 2 other YDers , Yazzyfooty, a Southerner with a iNorthern identity crisis(read Nurse Ratchett) and Ali who is actually a bloke,from Leeds and we all arranged to meet early doors.



Sunday ..daft o clock and the posse gathers, pleasantries exchanged and other peoples kit enviously eyed.Dive wagons were parked at various points of the car park and we all arrived back at Yazzys toy French Car for the first dive.



Now at this point Ali comes up with something called a "dive plan" and proceeds to point out all the attractions on offer on his tour.Myself and Mark being veterans of perhaps 4 or 5 trips to Capernwray are astonished whereas Yazzy gives Ali the knowing look and looks like she knows what to expect.




Well blow me (not literally, obviously) as 2 dives later I haven t seen more in Capernwray in 1 day as I have ever seen before...........and more!!
Boats , heli chopters, planes , and a bike(don t tell Sparky 750 ffs) were all on offer as Mr TomTom 500 of the underwater world took us on a guided tour , all that was missing was the audio in 6 languages.



Seriously , a great day with great people (except markymark who is an absolute tw*t...............I mean great builder type bloke:) )


So to cap it all ....Ali ...fantastic mate and good luck with Wilmhurst
Yazzy.... as always xxxx
Mark.......f........off:teeth:



Cheers
Lee

Great trip report Lee, I shall excuse the rude comment about my choice of vehicle.
My turn now, I thought I had seen all there is to see at Capers, but the boat called something like Calamity?? was a new attraction for me. Ali yes you are great at blowing rings ;) and i heard that your deploying of the blob was also one of the best that Lee had seen(quote).
Great meeting new faces and even the old one :) and 2 very enjoyable dives.

I hope the diver that was choppered out is not to seriously hurt and is back to diving soon.

Shame I cant say the same about my later dive over in Horwich, far too many leeches for my liking and millions of little things, water fleas? One dive for 25 minutes was enough. But I did collect one golf ball.
