Checking out the chamber

Newsletter: Club evening and chamber dive

Hi everyone

We have done very little diving this past week, lousy weather and lots of wind.

Dive planning

This weekend I am hoping to do boat dives one day (probably Saturday, weather dependent), and shore dives with students on the other day. Let me know if you’d like to tag along on either and I’ll keep you in the loop.

Boat dives

Please note that prices for boat dives are going up as of 1 March (today) from R180 per person per dive to R210. If you want to buy a ten boat dive package you can do so directly from Grant at BlueFlash for R1600. A one-off boat dive directly from Grant is R250.

Obviously if you’re doing a boat dive as part of your course, you don’t need to pay.

Chamber dives

We have one or two spots left for the chamber dive, which is taking place on Tuesday 8 March at 5.30pm in Rondebosch. This is going to be a very entertaining (and hopefully educational) experience and I’d recommend you join us if you can. Email or call me if you’re interested.

You don’t need a medical certificate if you plan to do this dive – just an Open Water (minimum) qualification.

Wreck diving talk

On Wednesday evening (2 March) there’s a talk on shipwrecks (diveable ones) of the West Coast, given by Alistair Downing of Underwater Explorers (the diver who described his experience of being bent to Clare for a blog post on DAN membership that I mentioned two newsletters ago).

It’s happening at False Bay Underwater Club which meets just down the road from where I live in Kenilworth. This is a nice opportunity to meet some of the FBUC members (many of whom you will recognise from diving on the boat), to see what it’s like to be part of a dive club, and to learn something new and interesting.

If you’d like to attend, let me know and you can meet at our house at 7.20pm and follow us down the road from there. The talk should be over by 9pm unless things get really out of hand.

There’s no charge except the price of one drink at the bar to support the club!

Dive Site magazine

Those of you who haven’t signed up for the Dive Site magazine at www.thedivesite.co.za should do so – it’s a FREE quarterly magazine of outstanding quality (far better than the ones that actually cost you money) along with a super weekly newsletter (and I am not just saying that because I was featured in the last one!). In the next issue of the magazine will be an article about the discovery of the SS Cape Matapan, the wreck opposite Cape Town Stadium that some of you dived with me last month (with mixed success!)
