Next weekend I'll be heading down to Portland for my first dives of 2013 on the Duck's ice breaker trip. Hopefully the dry suit still fits after the xmas over indulgence!

I had a did in the Moray coast today at Port Soy, and will most likely be in the water mid to late next week in Loch Long. Nothing too fancy but have a small trip coming up in Easter :)

No Idea, haven't got anything planned for definite 'til April. Too bloody cold ;)

I'll probably wander up to Vobster at some point though, make sure everything still works.

Hopefully, on New Year's Day.. at Morrison's Quarry. As long as it isn't too cold.

It was too cold for us to go, today (-20C, outside)!
(Yes, we are wussing out. We haven't been in since coming back from Mx) :P

Twofishdivers. Kirstie and Turbs highly recommend it, and I know the couple who run it, having dived with them at Sipidan. It turns out I have managed to get one of their deals as well, one divers pays full price, their buddy only pays 50% :)
I used Bastianos last time I was there.

I organised a trip for my club so 5 of us went and we had 2 guides and a boat to ourselves for the majority of the time we were there. All very relaxed, the cottages were nice and the food was plentiful. The only thing that wasn't good was that the wifi rarely worked but if that's the only thing I can complain about..

I may get a couple of local dives before but on the 20th I hope to dive the Berlenga Islands off Portugal mainland. Of all the years I have been here I havn't dived these islands and this is supposedly the best place to dive off Portugal. I hope the weather behaves itself.

I have joined a new dice club with its own van. I think it will make a big difference to my diving this year, for the better obviously.

Probably Wraysbury. Vobster if I'm lucky. If I'm really lucky, the sea. My twins are full with 32% at the moment. Would be a shame to waste it in a quarry

So far this year I've had a couple of days in Portland (Duck's ice breaker) and a day in Stoney. When snow and holidaying skippers ended dives I sent important bits for service.

Next dive will be a system check (not this weekend) and then subject to boat, kit, and weather, permitting I'll be falling into the English Channel somewhere south of Brighton.

Hoping to get out of Portland this weekend on one of Smudges Winter Specials - though it looks like Sunday does not look promising (in which case a trip to Vobbie may be called for to rinse off the kit ;))

Alex - there is a chance that I may see you on the M2, the guy orgainisng our trip wanted to do that wreck :)

Enjoy! I thought I wasn't diving this weekend but it seems I am now picking up a Maplins heated vest (£12.99) and then heading to Stoney Cove, hopefully with scooters, to test out the new toy :D
