I agree. It's created a lot of interest on our Facebook posts, and has encouraged members to report where they have been diving.

We could go for 100, or for 50 UK dive sites, or maybe 50 dive sites on club dive trips / more than 1 club member participating? We've done 21 UK dive sites (though I suspect that Adrian can add a few more to the tally and so can I!), & 22 had more than 1 club member.

Thoughts?

It seems fitting that the 50th dive site should be an old favourite. Dive site #50 of 50 Cumbrae Elbow, Little Cumbrae, Scotland . We were entertained by a small octopus. Video clip on the Facebook page.

Now we really need another challenge! Any ideas folks?

Another 2 today. Angela, Dave, Tom & Maria, plus Andy, dived #54 the Rosehill and #55 the James Eagan Layne.
The Rosehill was poor viz, but the JEL didn't disappoint. A cracking dive!

Two dives on the Zenobia today plus two dives at Cape Greko last Monday. Those would be 58 and 59.
