FABULOUS FIREWORKS SWIM
'N' DIVE EVENING
POSTED: 16th September 2016

Is it really that time of the year already?! With the Summer head off into the distance faster than Mo Farah chasing a Quorn burger, it's time to look forward to our fabulous annual fireworks event which will be taking place at Vobster Quay on SATURDAY 5th NOVEMBER 2016 from 6pm onwards.

As is the tradition at this time of year, we'll be filling the skies above the lake with enough bangs, pops and whistles to scare even the hardiest of pets (so please leave them at home, folks!). Best of all, the fireworks display is COMPLETELY FREE so why not bring along the family? Don't forget the sparklers or the kids will be revolting!

Fancy a cheeky swim or dive whilst you're on site? For the usual small entry fee, divers can take advantage of the late season night diving whilst swimmers can get some laps - just make sure you're out of the water by 7pm, folks, or we'll set off some bangers in the water too!

Naturally we'll be laying on some very special food and drink during the evening with a very tasty BBQ serving a range of suitably fiery treats to tempt the taste buds. In addition, we'll have a fully-licensed bar onsite serving a full range of alcoholic - and, for the designated drivers, non-alcoholic - beverages until 10pm.

Get the evening of the 5th November in your diary folks! - it's gonna be a blast :)

TIME TO LIVE
THE DREAM!
POSTED: 22nd August 2016

The training team at Vobster is looking to recruit a number of divemasters to regularly assist with PADI training courses at Vobster Quay. you will need to have an in date HSE medical, a divemaster qualification and the means to arrive at Vobster Quay by 8am on working days - we're in the countryside with poor bus service. We're also looking for previous divemastering experience in the UK, so the ability to dive in a drysuit is also essential.

In return, we offer actual money and some staff discounts for divemastering, plus the opportunity to develop your skills in the friendliest inland dive centre. Many of our divemasters progress with blending and technical qualifications. If you would like to know more please email info@vobster.com with your CV or questions. Cheers, Tim

GET 3D SCANNED
AT VOBSTER QUAY
POSTED: 09th July 2016

In the market for a new drysuit? TEKCamp sponsor Fourth Element will be setting up camp all next week to showcase its full range of expedition-level drysuits and undersuits.

We're particularly excited to reveal that they'll be setting up their unique BIOMAP.3D scanner - a new imaging system designed to revolutionise the way drysuits are ordered and made. BIOMAP.3D uses full body scanning to create a 3D model of your body from which hundreds of accurate measurements can be taken before determining what size suit you need, or, if made to measure is required, to create a unique pattern for your suit.

Even if you're not signed up for TEKCamp, why not pop along to Vobster Quay next week and get yourself scanned? Once Fourth Element have your 3D scanned measurements on file, you can then order your Argonaut 2.0 drysuit at your leisure.

Vobster regular George Birch and his team of buddies head away from the crowds to the obscure bits of Vobster. Nice viz here at 24m, but dark - torches certainly a good idea. Cheers, Tim
