Sunday is club diving day we aim to get the club boat out every Sunday – weather permitting. Sunday club diving caters for all levels and typically includes sites such as Alice-Marie, Hellopes, City Of Westminster and the famous Runnelstone. The Falmouth Bay wrecks: Volnay, Hera, Mohegan and the Manacles reef. North coast favorite’s such as the St.Chamond (aka the train wreck).
We have a rota for Sunday club diving where suitably qualified club members take on the role of Dive Manager for the week. DM duties are carried out by qualified, experienced, members, but we also encourage less-experienced members to get involved with the support of someone more experienced.
The DM also organises the mid-week evening shore dive and BBQ. This isn’t always possible for people who live a distance away or have other commitments, but we all muck-in and manage to work it out between ourselves. Sunday club diving day is really the key priority.
As well Sunday club diving day, the boat also gets out on other days – mainly throughout the summer months – with our more experienced divers and boat handlers organising mid-week and Saturday dives to more challenging sites when the weather and tides are right. Recent dives during have included: From Hayle: Princess Royal, Enrico Parodi, Kintuck and St.Chamond. From Penzance: Runnelstone, City of Westminster, JR Parks and The Mulberry docks. From Falmouth: City of Ghent, Carmarthan and The Manacles reef.
Typically our boat diving is in the range of 15-45m, and our members have different kit configurations. Most are on single cylinders with pony cylinders, some on twinsets, and a we have around 5/6 rebreather divers.
The club makes a charge per boat dive to cover the day’s fuel and launching costs. The amount charged varies, depending on the distance the boat travels to the dive site.
