Kimmeridge Snorkel and Beachcomber Trip Report June 2014

Saturday 21st June 2014 was a glorious day, just perfect for snorkelling. With high tide due just after lunch, it meant a leisurely start with everyone meeting on the beach at Kimmeridge around 11.30am. While lunch was being eaten I talked the snorkellers through their first advanced theory lesson, touching on risk asessement. Getting the snorkellers, especially those new to open water to talk about what is invloved in doing a risk assessment is the best way to make them think about their conduct and actions in and around the water.

Sunday 8th September 2013

Well done to all those that came to Lulworth yesterday and a big thanks to those who helped out and parents who drove and hung out on the beach all day.

Now that’s history here’s the next one.

The plan for Sunday 8th September has changed slightly (for the better as I don’t have to get up so early)…

Snorkel trip Kimmeridge 11th August 2012

At the moment we are planning a day of snorkelling Saturday 11th August at Kimmeridge. (Lulworth is not an option  due to the Olympic exclusion zone)

We’ll meet about 10.30am on the grass in front of the Purbeck Marine Wildlife reserve hut. You can park in the top grass car park and walk down past the toilets towards the slipway, you’ll see the patch of grass by the buildings.

From here we’ll take the RIB round to Chapman’s pool, Mupe rocks and Worbarrow bay depending on numbers.

The wind is looking just about ok for Saturday so I’ll make the final decision Friday pm.

Once you turn off the main road by Corfe Castle there is no mobile phone reception so please ring early Saturday morning if you have any questions.

There are NO food shops nearby so please bring enough food for the day.

For those not snorkelling this isn’t a sandy beach and there is quite a bit of boat traffic around the slip way, but a 10 minute walk away, there is a shingle beach, plenty of places to play, paddle and swim, including the snorkel trail.

Please let me know if you are thinking about coming on Saturday and what kit, if any you need to borrow.

Could I also please have your mobile phone number so I can text you on Friday pm to let you know the trip is on.

For those divers among you check with Andi and Litchy about what’s going on. Endeavor may be in the area.
