We'd missed Ellerton Lake, where Mick and I taught some instructor courses earlier in the year, so that's #74.

A week in the Azores added a further 7 dive sites to the list:
#75 Furna, Pico, Azores (Ged, Dave W, Andy B, Maria, Dave S)
# 76 Cais Velho (Ged, Dave W, Andy B, Maria, Dave S)
# 77 Princess Alice Bank (Ged, Dave W, Andy B, Maria)
# 78 Arcades do Brianha (Ged, Dave W, Andy B, Dave S)
#79 Cabacea Vernelho (Ged, Dave W, Andy B, Dave S)
# 80 Saocoaetano (Ged, Dave W, Andy B, Dave S)
# 81 Sao Joao (Ged, Dave W, Andy B, Dave S)

It's looking like we will tip over the 100 in the next few weeks!

Geoff & I have just added another 7 dive sites to the list on our French Polynesia trip. We dived each of these channels at least 3 times, and the route was different each time, but we will treat each as just 1 site:
82 Fakirava South
83 Fakirava North
84 Kauehi
85 Toau
86 Apataki
87 Tikehau
88 Rangiroa

We didn't do as many different dive sites as I expected in Polynesia, so the pressure is on for the remaining 12 sites to break the 100 barrier.

There is Cumbrae later this month, and Jane & Tim have some diving planned in Australia and maybe Indonesia next month. Does anyone else have anything planned, or have any undeclared dive sites we can add to the tally?

OK, it's confession time! I'd under-declared my dives this year, so have just added a few more to the tally. We're now up to #110 dive sites this year, and still waiting to hear from Jane & Tim's Australian tour and Anton went out to the Red Sea today. We could be getting close to 150....

Me and Nick Yates have dived a lovely wreck today. R Penoñ at Tebaiba Tenerife. A dive easily accessible from the shore via steps. It lies on its side with the bow at approx 9 m and the stern at 30m. Lots of sea life viz aprox 15m sorry forgot to take pictures.
