West Bay 5 – 7 May 2012

CSAC divers (Andy, Gary, Clive, David, Mark, Chris R, Chris M, Paul, Adele, Miles and Geoff; Pete unfortunately fell ill and was unable to dive) and shore supporters congregated at the West Bay harbour on Saturday morning at 8.30am. It was windy, with a strong NE breeze, plus a hint of coming rain. Despite these unpromising conditions, divers set off aboard Huntress 2 in high spirits.

Season Kick-Off Dive – Portsmouth with Wight Diver

Well it wasn’t quite as warm as the previous 5 days in fact it was freezing… the air temperature dropped and it was very easy to get cold quickly.. Sea conditions were ideal, flat calm for most of the day with a little bit of a swell between dive #1 and dive #2..  Nothing to worry about..
