Miss this one and you miss out!
This is your invitation to join us at one the best event presentations you'll see for any dive resort in the world! I jest you not.
YD, in conjunction with SubAqua-1 and XtremExperience,
are happy to invite you along to enjoy a presentation and Q&A session by Ian Walker (one of the South African owners of Xtremexperience) on the manifestly amazing natural phenomenon that is - THE SARDINE RUN !!
Ian has been enjoying this naturally occurring annual event in South Africa for about 22 years - lucky sod - and has been directly involved with the organisation of escorted trips and expeditions for the last four years; indeed, he personally leads many such trips to experience the 'Run' every year.
Bearing in mind that the Sardine Run involves numbers of fish that you will (unless you do this dive regularly) never see again in such profusion, and that they attract massive pods of dolphins and umpteen difference types of sharks, you can see why being in the water as the 'Bait-balls' ebb, flow, mill and dart is absolutely thrilling, to say the least. Any way, along with his presentation, Ian has a killer video for us to watch so we can get an idea of what to expect on one of his tours and what it's like to be in the water whilst all this is going on around you.
Ian's over here making presentations all over the UK to promote the Sardine Run, and other aspects of diving in South Africa, and looks forward to answering as many of your questions as we might have on any aspects of the event. We're lucky enough to have been able to collar him for the night!
Our host for the evening will top Manchester Dive Centre, SubAqua-1 (the same guys doing the 990 Mag preso listed on these pages) and the presentation will begin at 7.00pm and should last just over and hour.
Admission will be FREE and you can bring your own beer to drink during the show. You can get a map and directions of how to get to SubAqua-1 from their website, see above URL. As a 'taster' for the Sardine Run itself, have a look at Ian's website - I know you'll be impressed.
Please can those wishing to attend post here so I can help in the organisation of this and get an idea of numbers for the night? Thanks in advance.
See ya there.
PS: It's also a good opportunity for some of those YD members who have not yet met each other to do so and go for a beer after the gig. Be rude not to!
