Isle of Man

Just back from the Isle of Man and had to put a few words on the web site. Brilliantly organized by Graham to make up numbers we took Ronnie and John from Westhoughton Branch who were great company.

A team of nine divers we based ourselves with Port St Mary Divers who are a father and son team who I would highly recommend! Excellent boat and accommodation in Port Erin which was a large detached house with plenty of room and within striking distance of the local pubs and restaurants we had eight dives from scenic to wrecks and an amazing drift dive through the calf of man where I discovered I could run out of line on my SMB we were moving so fast.

Kevin was our seafood expert providing fantastic food from the local delicacies! as well as helping with the cooking of breakfast! We experienced the vagaries of the weather on the Island, from brilliant sunshine to sea fog and windy conditions which were in total contrast to the main land.

It goes without saying we all missed Bill and his memory will live on as we complete each dive he would have been on!

Roll on the next trips UK diving can be brilliant so do not miss the opportunity
