Day 0 – Planning for our expedition

It was drizzling when I set off from home in Hertfordshire this morning, but as I traveled further south into London, that gentle rain turned into a very heavy shower with thunderstorms. There was a Met Office warning for heavy rain and wind, but I completely have forgotten about it after a sunny day at

Anglesey Bank Holiday Diving

Having had enough of the typical British weather (i.e. rain) over a couple of days in London, 8 of our ULSACers decided to get away from the city this bank holiday, of course, for the sake of diving. Having managed to battle through the Bank Holiday weekend traffic with all our kit and Rascal being

Day 13 – And now, the end is here…

Our single dive on the South Coast proceeded with military precision. A late start permitted our campers to be on top form (well as much as the rigours of the previous day would permit), and we went through the “Yay – go diving!” bit pretty much on automatic. After so many days, everyone knew everything

Day 12 – Not much stops us diving

Day 11 – Stunning scenery and skittles

After a refreshing day off, we were all looking forward to another excellent day’s diving. We were in for a real treat today! Not only did the day managers permit something of a lie-in (0845 leave, anyone?), the weather and tide fairies ensured glorious conditions. Sardriere in distant Northern Sark was our first dive, with

Day 10 – Chillaxing on the Island

We were all looking forward to Day 10 as our fantastic leader had decided it was to be a day of rest. The day began with being chucked out of the pub at midnight, with several people staggering a short distance home up a few narrow roads with shouts of ‘CAR’ every few paces, Ali
