Winter diving 2012

on Sun, 2012-12-23 21:46

GSAC diving continued through winter 2012 as always and those who were prepared for the cold were rewarded with some great scenery and vis at times. Our shallow hub rib An Bád Thanaí came into its own in the winter as always. It's so easy to launch and retrieve and perfect for the smaller groups and shorter journeys to the dive site that are typical of winter.

Water temperature is about 8C these days, which is not bad relatively speaking for winter in these parts.

Killybegs 2012

on Wed, 2012-10-24 10:54

Great time in Killybegs last weekend. 11 Club Members made the trip from Galway to Donegal. John Sheahan, ably assisted by Thomas Moore, towed Joe Fada while Gareth Rogan towed the club compressor (thanks guys!). It was my first time to dive out of Killybegs and was suitably impressed with the facilities to hand.

The proximity of the large slipway to the Tara Hotel made transition from boat to shower a joy, especially when you have a leaking dry suit!!

Weather conditions were also ideal on Saturday,


France 2012

on Thu, 2012-10-18 21:06

I'm just back from the club holiday to Juan-les-Pins in the south of France, with day trips over to Monaco. Very different world, including the 21 degree water temperature. We had a great time, diving every day at 9am and again at 2pm, leaving us plenty of time to tour around, or just sit on the beach. Oh it's a hard life :)

Everyone wanted to keep the cost down, so we had booked a set of chalets (basically glorified garden sheds) in

New Club Divers!

Congratulations to our new club divers Alicja, Micheal and Killian who passed their club diver test last Saturday up in Killary Harbour. Dave Jackson from Pucan Sub Aqua Club was examining.

Joe saw over the whole affair in his role of RDO.

Of course, we must not forget John Flavelle and Paula Harte who passed their club diver tests over the past couple of weeks as well.  Unfortunately we have no pictures of them.
