GLUG dive trip - WEYMOUTH - 21st-22nd May
Trip Organiser: Mark
Participants: Mark, Debi
IMPORTANT: TRIP NOT YET CONFIRMED - REGISTER INTEREST WITH GLUG ONLY AT THIS TIME
This trip is being organised as book by the space direct with two operators - Scimitar on Saturday and Jurassic Aqua Sports on Sunday.
We've had to split across boats as this weekend is proving popular with divers and Jurassic ran out of spaces on Saturday, both operators are diving the same wrecks though.
With many operators still proudly demanding full social distancing, mask wearing, self declaration forms, barring entry to most onboard spaces, not serving onboard refreshments and having strict rules on kitting up solo, the choice of dive operators for 2022 is severely restricted. This operator appears to have a more progressive approach to Covid 19 and whilst it isn't possible to guarantee what measures might be demanded, their website suggests that they are keeping in step with government guidance which as we know is currently, there is no guidance!
The book by the space approach allows us to run trips even with small numbers. It also allows members to dive on as many or few days as they wish without financial penalties for anyone and the club runs no risk of financial losses as all bookings are direct with the operator.
Obviously the boat will likely be booked out completely and we will be sharing the space with random divers however we can cope with such conditions amicably and there's no harm in meeting new people and making new friends.
This trip is intended as a normal GLUG dive weekend with depths in the 30m range for the first dives of the day which are wrecks. I apologise for the near certainty of the 2nd dives being reefs (yawn) but you can't have everything!
The ropes off times are early meaning that an early finish can be expected on the Sunday which will aid journeys home.
The boat dictates the schedule, GLUG has no influence.
Sat 21st - Alex Van Opstal + 2nd dive - Depth 31m
Sun 22nd - Aeolian Sky + 2nd dive - Depth 32m
Each dive day costs £70 and this must be booked with the provider direct.
Please Note: The dive cancellation policy differs from that which you may be used to and can be found in section 6 here.
TBC once trip is confirmed but likely to be Portland. You may arrange your own accommodation if you wish.
