Diving Sunday 16th November
Dive Days The gloomy weather reports earlier in the week didn't improve so the cray bash out of Flinders was never going to work. However our intrepid DC kept his nerve, even though the forecasts continued to deteriorate. Two boats and 7 divers met at Sorrento at 10:00AM on Sunday morning. It looked like the only option in the southerly blast would be to dive Portsea Hole, but once again our steely nerved DC pushed for the limit and both boats met up over the Eliza Ramsden for the ebb slack.

With a shot line nicely placed near the bow and only one ship coming through the heads the first group of divers went in early, experiencing quite good vis for an ebb slack dive. Current was OK, though there was a fair amount of surge. Plenty of fish life and they even saw some crays. Pete was still salivating 20 min after the dive.

With everyone back on board there was still time for a second set of divers to go down, while one crew broke into the day's rations of hot dogs.

The second group also enjoyed a 30min dive before the current started to pick up. Both boats then headed for the shelter of the Nepean Headland for a lunch of fresh hot dogs, complete with mustard and tomato sauce.

With lunch out of the way it was agreed scallops were the way to go so we headed for the beds off Rye. The pickings varied, but Leo got carried away and eventually left his filled catch bag on the bouy line for the crew to retrieve.

Both boats headed back to the ramp, with some members debriefing at the Sorrento pub. It was great to be diving with a potential new member (Daniel) and to have Leo back in the water.

Another very pleasant days diving.
