December 2016 – Portland

Report by Steve Burgess

Clubs third trip in 2016 to Portland and this one did not disappoint.

Paul, Mark and I decided to have a splash at Vobster as a warm up dive for the weekend.

Day 1:  We meet Len & Maggie on board the skin deeper and we head out to the Landing Craft & Bombardon unit 50.34.419N  02.24.986W

Two sites are situated close together, and a rope links them both. Viz was around 4-5 meters water temp 9.

Tim & Jules, Jac & Simon then Me, Paul and Mark.

Day 2

We meet Len & Maggie unfortunately the wind was worse than yesterday so it’s the harbour again. We head off to a unknown wreck, it was so silty and the viz was very poor so not much to report on this one as it’ a bit of an unknown.

Second dive was back on the Countess of Erne as all enjoyed this the day before.

We all head back after a group photo and get our kit to the car, say our goodbyes and head off home from what can only be described as a really  fun weekend with great people. A really big thank you to Mark for sorting out the trip and to the rest for making it such a laugh.
