Bridlington Expedition - 17th - 18th July 2021

Pat Spencer and Phil Darlington are a running Club RHIB exploratory trip from Bridlington to dive a couple of wrecks in the 30-35m region, hopefully Ocean Liner MS Pilsudski which is around 35 miles from the launch site, a 2 ½ hr motor each way.

We will be limiting places to meet Covid distancing requirements also because of the distance we have to travel the weight on board is an important factor. One of the other places will have to be a Diver Coxs’.

As the seabed will be around 33m and we will be a considerable distance from assistance the trip will be limited to Experienced Sports Dive Leader who have completed their depth progression. It would take Lifeboat assistance about an hour to arrive so you must be comfortable with being offshore and dive confidently & conservatively.

These are unconfirmed marks so we can’t guarantee the wreck is where we think it is or that we have slack water correct, although I am confident about both. Time and Tide limit will limit us to single dive each day, if we make it out to MS Pilsudski it will be a long and busy day, expect early starts to catch the tide and 5:00pm – 6:00pm finishes

It will be a long offshore day. Rhib toilet facilities will be a bucket camping toilet, privacy and courtesy will be observed by others on the boat. You’ll need to take your own lunch and drinks.

Costs for the tow fees, boat fuel and tractor launch are expected to be circa £80 – £90 per diver for the weekend. If we don’t make it out to the MV Pilsudski the boat fuel costs would reduce.

Accommodation at The Lobster Pot – Marsden Inn Hotel, Bridlington is £57:00 per person per night, 15 miles from the launch site.  Arrive Friday Night – Depart Sunday Morning.

If the weather forecast or other factors mean we can’t get to MS Pilsudski we’ll choose alternative dive sites.  We have marks for 130 wrecks in the Bridlington Bay including two submarines.

Please contact Pat or Phil if you are interested.
