WIN AN OTTER
BRITANNIC 2 DRYSUIT!
POSTED: 24th April 2015

BREAKING NEWS! We're very pleased to announce that - for the second year running - one very lucky TEKCamp attendee will be walking away from this year's event with something very special indeed - a superb Otter Britannic 2 drysuit made just for you!

Bastion of the UK technical diver, Otter have been making drysuits for some of the most extreme dive explorers for more years than we (and probably they) care to mention. Up for grabs is their very latest model - the superb new fully-telescopic Britannic 2 technical drysuit. Worth over 1300, this gorgeous suit is as tough as it is good looking. Worried that it wont fit your odd shape? Worry no more - this beauty will be made to measure just for you :)

Thanks to our friends at Otter Drysuits, this very special prize will be given away on the last day of TEKCamp 2015. All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to attend TEKCamp - every single diver who attends the event will automatically be entered into the prize draw!

Sign up today at [WEBLINK] and start dreaming of that lovely Otter drysuit. Pop into the Vobster shop for more information on this simply gorgeous suit or visit our online shop at [WEBLINK]


VOBSTER HONEY BEES BEAT
THE WINTER BLUES!
POSTED: 22nd April 2015

Vobster Quay Inland Diving Centre added 4 new photos.

A little known fact is that we have honey bees at Vobster Quay and we are so pleased to say that all 3 bee colonies have come through the winter in grand style!

Lots of bees are flying and pollen was being taken in (which is a good indicator of baby bees). Fingers crossed the spring stays mild, well be off to a flying start for the season. They had even paid their ground rent for the hives in beeswax, now available in the shop for your zips!

Save the bees! Street artists Louis Masai Michel & Jim Vision created these graffiti artworks around London to draw attention to bee decline.

Just this week, a bee scientist announced the UK government may have drawn the wrong conclusions from a study into the impact of neuro-active insecticides on bees.

The study was used to support the government's position that the insecticides do not threaten bees. Read more here >> [WEBLINK]


J2 - 1000
HOURS UNDER THE EARTH
POSTED: 21st April 2015

Popular TEKCamp instructor and dive explorer Phil Short Technical will be returning to this year's TEKCamp with tales of his recent adventures.

Phil will be giving two talks at this year's event - one on Antikythera and a second 'keynote' talk on J2 - a project that saw him spend over 1000 hours underground in a virgin cave system.

Phil was lucky enough to be able to join a 50+ person team of 15 nationalities in Southern Mexico in for 3 months in early 2013 to continue exploration of the J2 Cave. This cave is part of a master system of caves in Southern Mexico that Bill Stone - Pioneering CCR designer, cave explorer and space engineer - has devoted over 3 decades of his life to.

During the project Phil and Marcin Gala pushed the cave beyond the elusive 4th sump and extended the cave to over 12 km horizontal and 1.2 km vertical in length. Phil spent a total of 45 days underground during the 3 month project.

TEKCamp 2015 takes place at Vobster Quay between the 13th - 17th July this year. Not booked yet? Pop across to [WEBLINK] and book your space now!

Friday Temp and Viz update: It's a Lake of two halves! Above 10m, temp ranges from 12 at the surface to 9 degrees above the thermocline, with lovely viz of 8m. Below 11m, temp is still an early Spring 7 degrees with not one, but two sorts of plankton (green phytoplankton AND Daphnia if anyones a nerd like me) reducing the viz to around 5m. It feels quite traditional, but still good diving. Cheers, Tim
