Hi Naomi,

I'm keen to come along on this, if someone is willing to buddy up with me?. Would it be ok to only stay on the Saturday night? Also do we need to book direct with the skipper? Finally if anyone is comming down from the NW and fancies sharing the cost of petrol (i'm happy to drive) that would be great!

Sorry sooo many questions!

Cheers

Tom

Hi Tom,

No problem to just stay sat night. I started the list as we can get a discount if we get 8 of us based on 4 twin rooms.

Re booking with the skipper, the ropes off for the Sunday is going to change today but I will come back by this afternoon with details and a link to book online.

Re buddy, sorting one before the day is your best bet. I'm sure someone will pipe up on here shortly! I am already taken as it were at the mo but I am pretty sure we can shuffle around a bit if you can't find one :)

Aqua space?

Naomi
Please empty your box, you are full up!

I would like to come along. Do you have any room space left at the Aqua? Their online booking suggest not much space. Assuming you still have boat space that is. I want to sort accommodation before taking the boat space.

Hi Sorry, I have emptied it :)

Just spoke to the Aqua and they have 3 twins left but we do not have enough for the discount so the simplest thing we can do is book individually on line. There are no singles left so we need to double up!

Or there is the breakwater across the road who do have a number of singles left. 01305 820476.

For clarity, you now need to arrange your own accomodation and make buddy arrangements if you can before the trip. Drop me a PM if you are stuck.

You also need to add your name to the list to secure your space and by doing so you are agreeing to pay or find a replacement if you drop out.

cool, will be good to see you again dave!
Hi Tom, it will be good. Fancy diving together again? Hopefully it will be a bit less windy too :) I see you've dropped the colourful drysuit so I might struggle to recognise you underwater. You'll not have a problem spotting me since I got tangoed! (My other suit "shrank" and I saw one for sale and ... it comes with a lot of colour).
