    Howdy all.

    It's been a while since I've managed to dive in the UK and I need to refresh my memory and check my kit out before a trip to Plymouth mid-August. Anyone up for a splash in Stoney Cove at some point in the next couple of weeks?

    thanks,

    Colin

    Hi Colin, I'll be up there w/e of 30th July with my son and his girlfriend "refamiliarising" them with dry suits prior to a trip to the Farnes in Sept.

    Ok, Chris. I can still do the Saturday - arguably better in some ways.

    What time are you planning on being there? I could do with being away for 1300 - so the earlier I'm in the water, the better.

    I've booked a parking space, so I'll be aiming to be there around 0800.
    Planning to have a bit of a splash on the shelf, to get the kiddies comfortable in their drysuits. Then maybe we can go deeper.

    Sounds like a plan.

    I've let my membership lapse, so I don't have the benefit of being able to book a space. So ... I'll be there at sparrow's fart in order to guarantee a space in the bottom car park ... :bang head:

    Fozza - unless you (potentially) like walking 1/4 mile in kit - I'd suggest that you do the same.

    Good to meet up again @Col__M Hope we didn't spoil your day too much. Two nice dives, cake, scorched pork products: what more could one ask for?
    (Apart from viz, mantas, whale sharks, ...)

    Indeed it was Chris.

    Far from it, mate. It was just what I needed - a couple of gentle bimbles to get me back in to the swing of things.

    I enjoyed it. Hopefully, it will be a bit of a much needed push to get me in to the water more often.
