Bridlington – 31st May to 2nd June 2019
Qualification: Dive Leader
Pat Spencer and Phil Darlington are running a single boat exploratory RHIB trip to Bridlington to dive a couple of wrecks in the 30-35m region, hopefully Light Vessel 83 and Ocean Liner MS Pilsudski. These wrecks are around 35 miles from the launch site, a 2 ½ hr motor each way.
We are limiting it to a single boat of 6 divers because of the distance we have to travel weight on board is an important factor. Due to the distance from support or assistance the trip is limited to Dive Leader or above. These are unconfirmed marks so we can’t guarantee the wrecks are where we think they are or that we have nailed slack water. As it will be a long day offshore Rhib toilet facilities will be a bucket with toilet seat fitted to the top. Lunch will be served offshore from your own sandwich box at whatever time you wish to eat it.
Time and Tide limit us to a single dive each day, if we make it out to the Light Ship or MS Pilsudski it will be a long and busy day. Expect early starts to catch the tide and 5:00pm – 6:00pm finishes.
Costs for the tow fees, boat fuel and tractor launch are expected to be circa £70 – £80 for the weekend. Accommodation has been reserved for an an additional cost of £72:00 (£36:00 per person per night) at The Lobster Pot – Marsden Inn Hotel, Bridlington, 15 miles from the launch site. Arriving Friday Night – Departing Sunday Morning.
If the weather forecast or other factors mean we can’t get to the Lightship or MS Pilsudski we’ll choose alternative dive sites. We have marks for 130 wrecks in the Bridlington Bay including two submarines.
A Google Group Announcement will follow and the list will be displayed on Thursday, if you’re interested respond quickly to the Google Group Announcement as it is a small trip with limited places.
