Hi,

Ok, had a chat with Bren, Mark and a couple of others, we are going to get a trip to Plymouth going, the main event will be the James Eagan Lane, there will be others, we will keep them to the 30M bracket to allow for hangovers.

We have one hard boat for 12 people held, a second for 10 which I will ask to be held tomorrow. I can get a rib for some close to shore reef diving. We will make this as varied a trip as is humanly possible, ALL divers will be catered for.

There is accomodation for 12 provided by Pete the skipper, obviously, being Devon, there is a variety of camping, B&B's and posh hotels for all.

It is only fair on the skippers to tell them asap if we will take there boats, so please let me know if you are up for this as quickly as you can.

The list of those so far are;

1 * Bren Tierney (option a)
2 * Andy2Tanx
3 * Daz x 6 (the 'Bristol Massif')
4 * Steve Lovell
5 * John Duncan (option a)
6 * Richie
7 * Andrew Phillips (option a)
8 * Mark Chase (option a)
9 * Alex K (option a)
10* Steve W (option a)
11* "wor Lass" (Steve W) (option a)
12* Steve Miller (he only lives up the road)
13* Lou (option a)
14* Caroline (option a)
15* Timing (option a)
16* Wetlettuce (option a)
17* Mark (option a)
18* Adrian Kelland (option a) but might go for club rib

please specify the type of diving you would prefer,

a) Hard boat 30M wrecks, (last dive will be a gentle paddle)
b) Hard boat mixture 20M (ish) wrecks and drift dives
c) Rib for drift and reef dives

So cumon, lets be having you.

I probably have no excuse to miss this as a local yokel noob to you all. Put me down. Might (probably) even turn up the club RIB if no one else in the club is interested, so don't book a space for me if someone else needs one. Shame its a Spring. What other wrecks, Rosehill/Persier?

If you need another boat, I can recommend Storm, run by Rod Davies.

<font color='#0000FF'>Hi,

I can also make this so if there's room please put me on the list.

Cheers.

Mark.


PS. I would prefer 30M hardboat wreck dives with a shallower 2nd dive which would ideally also be a wreck. I don't really like 'scenic' drifts but will if I have to.

Press-ganged!  I like your style......


Anyway, just spoken to C and the lady she say "yes", so you may keep our names on that list!

Being as we want to do the Eagan Layne again then we'll be 30m hardboat please, sir.

Don't forget to book a small space for Alex's travelling Ted...aaah.

IIRC, the James Egan Layne is often done as a second HB dive. It is 24m to the bottom, to 6m(ish) on the bow depending on tide of course. Very good place to end if you get it right.

The Rosehill (31m) is best on slack, so you could do it about 11.20 BST Its a Spring, slack is HT +/- 3hrs. HT Plymouth is 8.20 BST.

<font color='#0000FF'>I can't speak for Steve Miller(band) but I'm up for it and might bring "wor lass" instead, it'll be a good incentive to make her finish off her remaining Sport Diver drills three years diving and still BSAC Club Diver, talk about taking it slowly!

Last time l dived out of Plymouth we dived the James Egan Lane, The Rosehill, the Edystone lighthouse reef and Gonzo`s nose.

The sea arround the Edystone lighthouse was oily calm, spooky really and a great reef to dive.

On the Rosehill l found eight congers or was it one eight times and the one and only time l`ve seen a free swimming conger eel, swan between my buddy and l so close, if l`d been brave enough, l could have hugged it all 2.5mtrs of it, awesome.

And the last of the weekend Gonzos nose.....well now if we have a crap dive we call it a Gonzo.

Can`t remember who we dived with but its the guy that has the shop and air fill station and b&b for twelve.

Completed ad nitrox course tonight at muddy pit wraysbury now on to deco course.

I am running a 10 wreck challenge out of Dover that week, and that weekend is the culmination a 50m Dive on a 50 year old wreck on BSAC's 50 anaversary.

May have to bring it forward a week at my end.

Have a good time.

Safe Diving
