The weather

We hope the weather “Gods” will smile upon us. It is possible of course that they won’t. If adverse weather conditions develop during the night of 7/8th July or on the morning of 8th we shall take all reasonable steps to notify competitors as soon as possible.

The club will be guided by advice from HM Harbourmaster, Torquay and by HM Coastguard. If we are advised to cancel the competition on safety grounds, we shall follow it. Every possible effort will be made to contact competitors by phone or text. We will also place a notification by means of a post on the club Facebook page.

In the event of uncertainty about whether it is safe to dive, the simple answer is “Don’t”. If you want to check whether the competition is going to go ahead, please contact the club’s committee on 07500 214916

Please also note the remarks about personal safety contained in the rules.
