60 Dive Sites in 2016

To mark the club’s 60th anniversary, we aimed to dive 60 different sites in 2016. On 5th October we achieved our target, with 7 club members doing a memorable dive on the wreck of the SMS Markgraf in Scapa Flow. Below is a list of all the sites we have visited (so far – remember we still have a trip to Nemo 33 coming before the end of the year), and doesn’t include the non-club dives our members did at NDAC, Gozo, Indonesia, the south coast and various other places in 2016. Well done, everyone, for getting so much diving done, and for diving such a wide variety of sites in less than 12 months.
