Hi all,

I'm looking for a buddy for Sunday 5th (this weekend). I'm busy on the Saturday so can only do the Sunday.

I was vaguely thinking of a couple of shore dives off Selsey lifeboat pier - there's slack water at 11.20 and 16.51, so plenty of time in between for pub lunch etc. Alternatively, try to get on one of the Wittering Divers ribs in the morning, then maybe shore dive in the afternoon. Or if the weather's pants, Horsea might be a backup possibility.

Alternatively there's this thing going on at Stoney - it would be good to meet a crowd of other YDs, but it does sound like it's going to be horrendously busy, and I'd rather be in the sea - but if anyone does want a buddy for Stoney I could be up for it.

Also open to any other suggestions within my experience (i.e. something nice and shallow, no deco) and not much more than a couple of hours drive from South London - I basically just want to get in the water before it freezes over


Any takers?

Tom
(AOW, 35ish dives, 11 in UK this year).

We will be meeting at Dover slip about 0930 Sun. As it is neap tides i want the shot in on the HW+3Hrs point. We should have a long slack and will be out by the Varne bank in the search for vis. (last time i did that we ended up diving in france).

Give me a call Sat evening if you want to join us.

Paul -

If you've got room and don't mind me tagging along, that would be great, thanks. I'll give you a shout on Saturday.

Cheers,

Tom / Howard

I am going to call this one due to the weather forcast, i'll text you as well. I think its better to cancel now so we can all make other arrangements.

I have 6 trainee Dive Leaders who need to finish the course and i will aim to get them into Larkfield Lakes to do their rescue Management Scenarios and Assesments on Sunday.

Feel free to join us and see some top notch rescue skills in operation!!! There will also be a lot of windups and laughs, and our club fool will be keeping everyone amused.:D

Maybe next weekend? Possibly a pioneering Sub like the B1 or the U8 (Yes Andy you got me interested in that one last night, amazing what a quick bit of reasearch can do for your interest).

Thanks for the advance warning - after seeing the weather forecast I thought it was looking unlikely.

Next weekend - sounds interesting! Will email you.

Cheers for the invite to Larkfield, but I think I might try to make it up to Stoney and see what some of the rest of the YD lot look like...

Well todays choice was
1. Diving with Paul from Dover.
2. Going to Stoney and meet and dive with some of the YD gang.
3. Carrying on with paving my patio and rowing with wifee.

Well option 1 was a no go because of weather, so it was a choice of 2 or 3 so like a prat l decided on option 3, didn't get much paving done but had biggie row with wifee.

So l'm sitting here drinking my scotch feeling a bit sorry for myself, wishing l'd gone up to Stoney (NEVER EVER imagined l'd think that) thinking about my next planned diving which is Andys red sea gig next bl***dy April.

Paul l'll be in Maidstone next weekend helping to move my son into his flat so l doubt l'll be able to sneak off to dive.
Is your new job shifts, will you be able to dive midweek if so how about Brighton/ littlehampton in the near future.

l'm busy checking Defiants and Channel divings mid week list for suitable dives for the next couple of weeks.

I hear there will soon be a very comfertable Cat on call for all and any occasion. Bacon Sarnies i gather will be top notch.
