Windmill Beach in better days

Newsletter: Duelling seasons

Hi divers

Weekend dives

Sunday: Launching from Simon’s Town jetty at 9.00 am, weather permitting

Finding enough dive related content for a newsletter is difficult when there has been little to no diving! The south easter has blown the entire week and is not yet done with us. It has flipped to north westerly and back and is forecast to do so a few times more in the next week. It is as though winter is on its way out, but fighting not to leave! I had a look at the Atlantic today thinking that the water might be clean after so many days of south east wind, but it is still very green.

This weekend does not look all that great. There is a fair amount of south easter on Saturday so I don’t think diving will be much good. There is less wind on Sunday, but some rain in the forecast.

Dive plans

Stay dry on Saturday, launch from Simon’s Town jetty on Sunday at 9.00 am (to be confirmed mid-Saturday). I am out on False Bay tomorrow and will have a better idea of whether and where we will dive on Sunday. If you have a preference and/or want to get on the boat, email or text me.

There has been a lot of permit checking lately so please make sure yours is current. If it isn’t, I have temporary permits available on the boat.
