Club members attending this weekend back on the 17th, 18th and 19th September were Sue Eyres, Chris Smith, Rick Bastin, Harry Bowden, Peter Eastland, Tom Ingram and Bill King.
We were out all day on the Cat. The morning dive was the Citrine. Today she lies upside down, bows to the NNE stern to the SSW, in about 18-25m adjacent to rocky reef. The location is tidal and should be dived on slack water. The afternoon dive was Black Hand reef plenty of Nudibranch etc. Saturday we had a barbecue at the Porthkerris apartments with Bill, Chris,Harry, Pete and Rick.
Harry and Rick met Bill’s challenge for 93% pork sausages by driving into Helston and getting an excellent mix of barbecue fare with 97% pork sausages. A good evening was had by all and the beer and wine helped the evening go well.
We were on the Cat all day. The morning dive was the Mohegan at 22 metres. We went down the shot line with the tide still running. At the bow we let go of the shot line and were in a fast drift situation. Chris Smith and Bill King hit the boilers in a matter of minutes! We sheltered behind the boilers and did a limited exploration we proceeded down the wreck for a few minutes we completed the 146mMetre length of wreck and put up the DSMB. The rest of the group followed.
The afternoon dive was the Hera wreck. Today the Hera lies well broken up and scattered on a rock an nose anemones. There is plenty here to see and lots of fish life especially large Pollack and a large orange coloured starfish.
We sorted our kit and all agreed it was another good Seahorse Dive Club trip. Set off home
