VOBSTER SANTAS 2023
GRAB YOUR FLUFFY BEARDS
AND RED PANTALOONS!
Ho Ho Ho! The biggest and best Scuba Santa diving event is back for another festive helping of charity fundraising and belly laughs! Once again we'll be strapping on our fluffy white beards and squeezing into poorly-fitting Santa suits to hit the water en masse in an effort to raise money for two very deserving charities!
Ho Ho Ho! We're delighted to announce that Vobster Santas is back for another bumper bag of festive diving fun! To start your festive season in style, we'll be hosting a very special yuletide dive session open to all - members and non-members alike. Grab your fluffy beards, folks - things are gonna get jolly!

Vobster Santas is all about getting together for some festive diving fun and - of course - raising some serious cash for charity! Once again, we're aiming to raise money for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and the Help For Heroes by encouraging each and every one of you to get sponsored. Both charities are very close to our hearts here at Vobster Quay so let's show them both just how much we value everything they do!

We’re aiming to get as many sponsored Santa divers hitting the water at 10:00am in one very jolly - and very silly - group! Gates will open at 7:30am followed by a dive brief at 09:30am so there will be plenty of time to get parked up, kitted up and ready to hit the water! Will we beat our record of 185 Santa divers all in the water at once? With your help, we know we can!

PLEASE NOTE: Full event information including a schedule of the day will be emailed to all participants shortly before the event. Read more information on Vobster Santas online.

GET YOURSELF SPONSORED!
