Did a dive in Stoney today, according to Mr Suunto;
Air Temp 2 degC
Water Temp 7 degC

First time I ever got in the water to warm up, my toes finally ceased to be a single numb unit after 20 mins in the car on the way home.

Hmm

Have to be honest, it was OK in the water, it was out that stung a bit.

Bit of an experiance really, doing SMB practice, one of the guys I was in with lost his feet and was down to 50 bar after 22mins. Tad under weighted, ended up with me hanging onto his feet and the other guy his harness whilst feeding him air.

On the whole it made for a fun dive. Where's Lou and Caroline when you need them eh!

Hi Andy!

We were there on Saturday, in the freezing fog.  Quite an experience.  You could see further under water than you could above, the water in our masks and on our wrist seals froze in the hour surface interval and we had to take a compass bearing to get back to the quay when we got lost in in the Navigation competition and surfaced over past the Stanegarth it was so foggy!

Ho hum.

Remind me why we do it again....

AndyP, it was 0c in the air the other week and 7c in the water, all I had on was a pair of trunks (ask Lou, when she stops laughing) and an undersuit, toasty - get a weezle extreme. Oh and a dry-suit etc. plus some Xeotherm socks, before anyone comes up with some smart arse answers.

Oh the pleasures of diving in this weather.  Not to mention seeing a diving at Vobster the other weekend trying to pick his fins up after they had frozen to the floor while he was getting out of his drysuit......
