TAKE A FESTIVE
PLUNGE FOR CHARITY
POSTED: 15th September 2017

Vobster Quay's record-breaking charity Santa diving event returns on Sunday 17th December for another round of festive chortles and fundraising fun.

Run in aid of the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI) and the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance, this ever-popular fundraising event aims to raise sack-loads of cash for two very deserving charities.

Vobster Quay invites all our divers to grab their red pantaloons and fluffy beards - and as much festive cheer as they can muster - and head down to Vobster Quay near Mells, Somerset for a mass sponsored Santa dive in aid of charity. Since the events' inception back in the late noughties, Vobster Santas has raised over £30,000 for the RNLI.

For more information on Vobster Santas - including details on how to sign up - visit our website at [WEBLINK]

REDBARE CCR
COURSE CONGRATULATIONS
POSTED: 08th September 2017

ong>Steve Martin and Alison Gundy have reaped the rewards of their hard work over five days and nine hours of diving, with qualifying dives on their new VMS RedBare CCR. Here they are in action during ascent skills sessions and the 'victory shot' at the end of it all. It's been a privilege to update their OC tech training to the silent world of CCR diving - great dives await your persistence and application to CCR skills. Cheers, Tim



GOOD SAMARITAN
DIVERS
POSTED: 04th September 2017

Here's a tale of diver generosity needs thanking in person:

"Hi there,

I had a car accident on the Wells Road this afternoon and was very lucky that a group of folk who had been at Vobster stopped and helped me. There was a man called Jeff/Geoff who was a First Aid trainer and another man called Dazza. Several other people too, but I can't remember their names. They left once I was securely in the ambulance but I didn't get any surnames. Are you able to help me to identify them.please? I would really like to get in contact and thank them.

Anika Butler-Wyatt"

If you know who these people might be, please ask them to make contact. Cheers, Tim



ALL YOUR SWIM
QUESTIONS ANSWERED!
POSTED: 08th August 2017

Planning your first swim visit to Vobster Quay but not sure where to start? Fret no more for help is at hand :-)

To make your first visit as easy and painless as possible, we've put together a very useful leaflet packed with all the information you need. We've listened to all the common questions we encounter and have put the answers to them all together in this handy pocket-sized leaflet along with really useful stuff like swim timetables, a map of the swim course and so much more. Even if you're a seasoned Vobster swimmer, check it out - we're betting there's stuff in there that you may not already know!

You can pick up a copy of this leaflet from the Vobster Quay shop or - if you'd rather get the information in advance - we've made it available as a convenient PDF download right here - [WEBLINK]



FREE SHOWERS
UPGRADE COMPLETE
POSTED: 31st July 2017

It's not the most exciting image in the world, but it shows the dual redundant boilers now powering the Vobster changing room showers.

The original system was designed to cope with the occasional shower, not six heads running at 3 litres per minute all day! We now have enough capacity, in two boilers so there will still be some showers, even when one doesn't work. Thanks to Blue Flame Gas and Richard Girdler for the excellent service.

The new showers might go the distance but please remember to keep your shower down to under 5 mins for the sake of other waiting and the environment - please don't waste water.

Vobster regular Marcus Blatchford has been very busy. Straight after getting back in the water, he has spent significant time photographing the 12m shelf and developing this 3D model. It's an incredible tool for dive briefings and orientation - we are extremely grateful to Marcus for his time and processing power. We look forward to extending the range! Enjoy.

Last weeks Good Samaritans need some help - Oxford dive centre had one of their cylinders collected from our gas station by someone else. It's a standard 12 litre cylinder with Oxford Dive centre helpfully on a sticker. Whoever collected it has left one in exchange. Can you please check your cylinders and help us sort out the muddle please?

POSTED: 11th September 2017

Ho Ho Ho! The continuing success of our world record-holding Vobster Santas Splash-in from its humble beginnings here at Vobster has inspired us to carry on with our traditional Christmas dive this year.

We are not alone either - a quick trawl of the global diving community reveals Santa diving events in Crete, Key Largo and Santa Cruz Island to name but three. Santa diving events are popular here in the UK too but none even come close to the size and shear... [more]
