Scouts Try-a-Dive Sessions

Taster Sessions for Scouts Planned for Autumn & Winter

Oxford Branch has reserved a number of evenings in the next few months for Scouts in the Oxfordshire area to come and try Scuba Diving.

These “mini Try-a-Dive” sessions allow Scouts to have a go with Scuba equipment in our pool with an instructor. Rather than the usual price, as these are mini sessions, the price is reduced to £10 per person. Numbers are limited to 12 scouts per evening.

If you are interested in attending, then please get in touch with our Try-a-Dive Co-ordinator. All dates are Friday Evenings and are based at our training pool at Radley College.

Wrecks East of Weymouth

9th June 2013

We only dived one day, but the weather was fine and I hope an enjoyable day was had by all.

Chris Stevens diving SS Treveal - picture by Anthony Hayes

Only managed to dive on two wrecks, the first, which was new to the branch was the SS Treveal, which hit the Kimmeridge Ledges and sank just outside Chapmans Pool.  As described, there is little left of this wreck, but a few people found the deck plates and some of the remaining structure.

A video of this dive by Chris Stevens and Anthony Hayes is available on our Facebook Page.

The second dive was one of our favorites, the Black Hawk in Warbarrow Bay, where the visibility was slightly better, the current was reduced and there are larger chunks of wreckage to be explored.

Many thanks to all who attended, especially Stu for skippering, Chris for assisting and cajoled scribes Rob & Anthony.

Logsheets of the dives are posted on the noticeboard at the club and are available on request.
