26th July 2014 - Annual BBQ
annual social event took place at Ashleys, and was relaxed and enjoyable. It was well attended although many members were
on holiday and sadly missed it. The weather was very kind to us, it was a warm balmy evening. The traditional Raffle took
place and raised well over £100 for club funds.
6th July 2014 - City of Waterford
A small group of
club members enjoyed a good dive on this famous wreck near Newhaven.

29 to 31 metres, visability 2 to 3 metres. Water temperature 15 degrees.
Farne Islands Dive Holiday - June 2014
was set fair for this annual pilgrimage to the popular and beautiful Farne Islands, just off the Northumberland coast. Although
the tides were not ideal, just coming off very high spring tides, the diving was enjoyed by all.
The weather was generally good, but northerly winds of varying speeds created quite a swell.
These conditions made it impossible to dive some of our favourite sites. However, this was more than compensated with the
exceptional playfulness of the seals, chewing fins and headbutting SMB's ! Their interaction with the divers this year
seemed almost human.
The visability was between
7 and 8 metres on most days, only decreasing to about 4 metres occasionally.
The bird population on and around the islands seemed greater than in previous years, great
photographic opportunities, above and below the surface.
I feel sure this event will be repeated in future.
10th May 2014 - CT3
CT3 was collected from Aquatec, Lancing, and taken by Peter to Brighton Marina Boat Yard,
where she was booked in for a mid-morning hoist into the water. The weather was not great, with the wind blowing 6 to 7, and
much stronger "gusts" expected. At one point the Marina thought they may have to postpone the hoist, and call off
our appointment. Fortunately, there was a window of opportunity and she was gently lowered into the water. She was then berthed
at her usual spot.
7th May 2014 - CT3
Following some winter maintenance, CT3 was taken to Aquatec, Lancing for her Engine Service,
all was fine.
28th April 2014 - Air Cadet Try Dives
We hosted a Try Dive event for a group of Air Cadets from nearby Kenley. 5 Cadets took part, and
their Instructor Peter also joined in the session. It was a successful evening, and all participants enjoyed their Sub-Aqua
experience. Peter was hopeful that other Cadets would book Try Dives in the near future.
8th & 9th March 2014 Vobster Quay Weekend
member's of the club enjoyed a very good weekend at this popular inland venue. The weather was very good to us, dry, sunny
and even warm. Several dives and training exercises took place, and we expect to return in the future.
2nd March 2014 - Recovery of CT3 from Marina
Although the weather conditions were far from favourable,
CT3 had to be removed from her berth at the Marina for us to conduct winter maintenance and prepare her for the coming season.
Nigel & Ray drove her around to the slipway in Shoreham,
where she was winched aboard the trailer. Following the necessary engine service, it was hoped she would be back in the Marina
