• Tycho, 28 July 2012

    On an overcast summers morning a selection of Croydon BSACs top divers assembled on Brighton Diver II to dive the wreck of the Porthkerry. With kit loaded and sea conditions looking good (I kept hold of breakfast) we were in for a good days diving. The plan changed from diving the Porthkerry do diving the […]

  • Dieppe 2012, 25-27 July 2012

    For the past few years I have arranged trips to dive the Normandy coast from the good ship Channel Diver (see past trip reports and galleries here: 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011). This year was no different, so on the morning of 25 July 10 of Croydon’s finest (plus guests) left a sunny Eastbourne in mirror-calm seas […]

  • Silfra – Thingviller National Park, Iceland

    Hearing tales of how awful this year has been for blown out dives and the fact I had to go to Iceland on a business trip meant I had to check out Iceland as a potential dive destination. It isn’t often you can say that a freshwater dive is better than going to sea but […]

  • Club Dive 17 June 2012 – The Twins (Ville de Bordeaux and the Irisbrook)

    Two wrecks for the price of one!!! That’s what you get with The Twins out of Eastbourne. The wrecks of the Ville De Bordeaux and the Irisbrook collided in the fog and sank together in March 1911. They now lie in an L shape with the bow of the Ville de Bordeaux in the stern […]

  • Club Dive Monday 4th June, The Devon Coast

    It was hard to muster any enthusiasm at 7am when my alarm went off. I had seen the forecast for the day’s weather and it was not looking very good. This and the fact that every dive this year of the south coast I had been treated to bad visibility. A quick look out of […]

  • Club Dive: The Alaunia, Monday 7 May 2012

    An almost civilised ropes off time for a change! 10:05 (or 10:30 depending upon who you’d asked!) The weather was due to be pretty kind, with F3-F4 winds and a break from the torrential rain of late. A pleasant journey down to Sovereign Harbour (Eastbourne) with minimal traffic, as everyone was probably having a well-earned Bank […]

  • Jaffa – What a Surprise!! (Club Trip, Sat 28 April)

    5.00AM – The buzzer goes off. I slumber out of bed and take a quick look outside my window. Once glance and the question burns “Why do I do it to myself?” It’s grey, gloomy, the rain is pissing down and the crazy neighbour downstairs is already noise polluting the house with another of his […]

  • Club Trip – Easter in Plymouth 2012

    As usual a group of Croydon’s finest headed down to Plymouth this year for the traditional Easter Beano. We were diving form the excellent hard boat Venture skippered by the jolly northern pirate Pete Fergus.

  • Club Dive: The Cairndhu, 31 March 2012

    Where do I start ? Well if you wasn’t on this dive then bad luck for you because this was one of those days when everything was just perfect and it makes you really appreciate all the great things about UK diving.

  • South Coast Puke Fest

    On a bright and beautiful March morning a bunch of Croydon BSAC divers loaded their kit on their boat (Dive 125) for the day. The skies were blue, the visibility under the pontoon looked good and the mood was relaxed and positive. This was going to be a great days diving.
