Make a week of it?

Some clubs like to make a week of it and come down the week before, diving all the popular sites and working up towards the festival weekend. Plenty of diving to be had and with a RIB, a number of launching options within a hour’s drive can open up some exciting dive options.

For the festival, we meet on the Friday evening 10th June at Ponsandane Farm, Gulval, Penzance, TR18 3LU.   Club RIBs go to pre marked sites, launching early  on Saturday 11th June at Penzance Harbour and we have a great time diving!  Everything is organised according to the dive selections you make on your booking forms.  Saturday evening we have a massive BBQ organised by one of the local clubs and then we have fund raising raffles and auctions!

Sunday TBA– more diving for those who are able to do so!  Because not everyone is ‘fit to dive’ after the party, the Sunday diving is organised ‘on the spot’.

What does it cost?   £27.50 per head for the weekend with all profits going to DDRC, the hyperbaric chamber in the south west.
What does this cover?  Your diving and your BBQ!  Fuel is reimbursed for all club boats used at the festival on the Saturday – the costs of the BBQ and our minimal organisational expenses.  Over the last 20 years, we have raised almost £50,000 for DDRC.  Our main emphasis will be to have a great time and meet all our friends and dive buddies again!

Safety.  All diving is planned within the BSAC Safe Diving Guidelines – Your dive choicSONY DSCes must be within your qualification and experience and this is confirmed on the booking form by your own branch diving officer.
