Great day at Swanage

Down to Swanage to dive Old Harry Rocks and the Fleur de Lys – sunshine, good vis, great company and second breakfasts and lunch made for a brilliant day!  

May at the pool

Various members swimming, testing gear and practising skills at the May pool session, alongside some planning for the fit of the new engine to Eagle later this month!  

Cobra makeover!

A couple of hours with brushes and cloths and Cobra’s original seats are gleaming white once more and back in place in the hull.  Pizzas and hot drinks warmed up the chilly April evening and kept us all going, getting this large old Club RIB ready to be sold, while we order a new engine for Eagle.  

Shakedown dive at Andark

Five members enjoyed a very relaxed April day at Andark Lake testing our kit, with welcome hot drinks and lunch from the cafe, bright sunshine, water at a pleasant 13 degrees and 2m visibility adequate to see the jetski, pipes and toilet and various other items of ‘interest’ that have been put in the lake (along with the resident snails, tadpoles, moorhen family and newt).    

Welcoming new members in April

Warmly welcoming two new members at our April pool session, straight into some rescue skills and dry suit test runs, while other guest divers had a refresher session prior to their diving holidays!  

 

2024 AGM

Members assembled for the AGM in March, with reports of the year past, committee post elections and plans for the coming year.  Dives at Andark and Swanage now booked in April and May while we work on the club boats. 

New faces in March

Very pleased to welcome new and prospective members at our March gathering in the pool, and later at the Mill.  

January Committee

Sociable committee meeting in the Mill in January, planning for the AGM and actions on the boats.  

Christmas cheer

A week after the final pool session of 2023, members gathered in the festively busy Mill for some pre-Christmas drinks.  

Dry suit practice

Toasty warm in the pool with dry suits in October, practicing buoyancy controls, and how to deal with over-inflated legs!
