The Norfolk Chalk Reef (Trimingham) - 11th - 12th September 2020
Qualification: Ocean Diver (must be comfortable with gentle drift diving) or above
Following a request from Helen Hamer, Pat Spencer and Phil Darlington (assisted by Tim Porter) are planning a dive weekend on the Norfolk Chalk Reefs. The Cromer Shoals Chalk Bed was created when dinosaurs ruled the earth and has been found to be the longest in the world. At over 20 miles long the 100-million-year-old reef is one-and-a-half times longer than the Thanet Coast chalk reef in Kent, the former record holder. We intend to dive the section between Cromer and Trimingham.
This will be a club Rhib trip for a single boat as launching on the Norfolk coast can be challenging often requiring two 4×4 per boat, also the lodge accommodation are 6 bed lodges. We’ll share the coxing so everyone will be able to dive and explore the chalk reefs. Two scenic dives per day around 10m – 15m. One of the dives each day will be a drift dive.
Arranmore North West Donegal - 19th - 26th September
Pat and Phil are running a club trip to Arranmore using Dive Arranmore Charters. Diving is a mixture of wrecks, walls, reefs and caves. 6 Days diving with 2 dives per day on a modern boat with loads of kitting up space, toilet, lift, and cabin. Cost for diving is approximately £240.
Accomodation at the Arranmore Island Holiday Village in newly built holiday houses. Cost for accommodation is approximately £120pp

Farne Islands - 30th October - 2nd November
Ian Hollingsworth is leading this years annual trip to the Farne Islands. We will be diving with Andrew at Sovereign Diving on a great boat kitted out with a lift, ample room for kitting up, toilet and a hot cup of tea between dives. A fun trip for all qualifications and a chance to play with Farne Island grey seals (or sea puppies as some members affectionately call them).
We’ll be arriving on the Friday evening and diving 2 dives per day on the Saturday and Sunday.
For more information contact Ian to look at accommodation options.
ECSAC Summer BBQ - 4th - 5th July 2020 - POSTPONED TO 2021
The club is returning to Anglesey for another weekend of diving, snorkelling, socialising and eating!
The diving will be organised by Helen Hamer and Jon Green, whilst the snorkelling will be organised by Dave Grindrod.
The Social committee have booked the BBQ to take place on Saturday 4th July in the Anglesey Outdoors Party Yurt. This will be £10 per person for the BBQ food which includes dessert. Scrummy!
We have reserved the Ty Penn Annex at Anglesey Outdoors which sleeps a maximum of 10. This will cost £36 per person for the two nights (Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th of July).
Should you wish to book your own accommodation there are a few options left at Anglesey Outdoors which can be found here, or you may look elsewhere.
Last year this proved to be a great event with many coming along even just for the day.
There is an interest list up at the club, please put your name down or let Alison or Jo know.
