Since the SETT thread was getting rather long, thought I'd seperate this out.

Who wants to dive Saturday afternoon/evening?  who wants to dive on Sunday?

Skipper (Dive Eclipse) has suggested a night dive (10:30pm) on Mulbury.  Presumably only if we can get enough people together.

There are no spaces on his Saturday afternoon dives.

Sticking with Dive Eclipse for a moment, there are spaces available on the Sunday, thus:

10:15 - Waldrens.  10 spaces.
13:45 - Teapot.  7 spaces.

If we exceed these numbers, then we can look elsewhere, so that we can all dive  
  Sorry Skipper  


Saturday Night Dive? (12):
1. DanE

Sunday Waldrens (10):
1. DanE

Sunday Teapot (7):
1. DanE (I'm happy to give this up if someone who's made a long journey wants to dive)

So who else is in?  

Any suggestions for Saturday afternoon greatfully accepted.  I'm planning on visiting the Mary Rose.

<font color='#000F22'>Dan,

I'm up for all and sundry dives. As I'm travelling from S.Wales I'd like to be able to get some more dives in that w/end.

As for the Mary Rose I've not seen her before so I'm sure that be a good way of killing a few hours.

Are there not other available dive boats in the area that we can use / book? Is Littlehampton not close by? or Plymouth. I know the logistics aren't as nice but might be worth a thought.

You could dive the Lifeboat Station at Selsey.   If this link works it will give you more information www.guildford-bsac.com/wiki.php?ShoreDive    The shore faces East so there is no viz if you have had Easterly winds but sheltered from wind from the west.

Slack water is 4 hours before HW Portsmouth and 3 hours after and lasts for one hour.   You could dive just after 6pm Saturday and midday Sunday.

<font color='#000080'>OK, I'll do the night dive and the 2 dives Sunday. Put me down and keep me posted about deposits/payment.

Is there accommodation nearby? Campsite would do it nicely that time of year.

Cheers.

<font color='#000080'>Put me down for one dive on Sunday. I was planning on staying until Tuesday but her indoors can't get the weekdays off. If you need cash just PM me with an account number/sortcode/bankname/your name.

Cheers,

<font color='#000080'>Dan,

I mixed my dates up some what. I can actually make both dives on the Sunday, Put my mussis down also, She's Josie Chaplin. One thing you should know is that we're both Ocean Divers with 45 and 30 dives respectively so we won't be going any deeper than 20 - 25m. Hope this doesn't spoil your plans. I get the impression from talking to a few mates that down south is not that deep anyway, its the tide and wind we need to look out for? See you there. Again if any deposit is required pm me and I'll give you some cash.

All three dives are under 20M..  and as gary said you wont have any problems..  However to do the SETT you have to be AOW..  Thats if you down to do the SETT dive

<font color='#000080'>Its fine Sean,

We have a couple of instructors who will be 'escorting' us down to the bottom. We've done our Sportdiver training and are now only to complete Open water dives in April. At the worst we'll just decend to 20m

You will be ok with the instructors down to the bottom,
    but without them they will not let you dive it.

<font color='#000080'>I would be up for some dives on saturday afternoon and I may be ok for the night dive the downside is that I have to travel back home afterwards for my Daughters birthday on Sunday.

Safe diving,
Steve.

I've just been to Dive Eclipse's website to check that the spaces were still there, but the site appears to be down.  Is it just me, or do others have this problem too?

ta,

stick me and another (pete) for the sunday dives..  Dave (dive Eclipse or Skipper on YD) may be following this thread it could be an Idea to ask him to reserve those two dives sunday for YD.. I have his mobile let me know if you can't contact him through his site and I can ring him if you like..  The boat takes max 12 divers and I sure we could get that..  At a push I could if we dont fill the spaces for YD get another 4 divers

<font color='#000F22'>it's been down for a few days as i also tried to check current availability. As we seem to have sufficient numbers now maybe each person should book they're respective dives with eclipse or should we try and do on block?
