So menus are in and numbers set, fingers crossed for good conditions.

Please don’t forget there is a steampunk theme on the Sunday evening, obviously this is nothing compulsory and just a bit of fun!
However even a pair of round sunglasses or other token effort would still help to make memorable photos and add to the atmosphere. (y)

So there are 18 divers confirmed but I would like to work out just how many will be at the Sunday evening prize giving?
I believe that 17 of the 18 divers will be attending but if you are bringing partners or family, could you please confirm how many?
It looks like a busy one with well over 30 folk!
We have kept some basic record of food consumption over the years, we don’t want to go short but obviously don’t want to massively over cater either.
The more the merrier but I need numbers please.

A few updates, we have 18 competitors for the competition , 22 for the Saturday evening and 42 people on the Sunday evening!
We have prizes from Spaniard & Apnea .
There weather forecast is not brilliant but we have had far worse .... South Westerly wind all next week with a moderate 12-14 mph wind.
So as usual, it does not look great for the west coast marks and I would not be surprised if we fish the same venues as last year.
We will have Oysters available on the Sunday thanks to Pierre J and hopefully some scallops if Andy & Chris can find some.
I only have one chef this year as Rob is injured so I will be looking for a volunteer to help Andy with the fish cooking.
