dunno what the outlook is for but the western side of the brett will be a go-er if this easterly stays up? It's a pretty sweet area from Oke Bay up to Deepwater Cove, very protected from the E, which is why they sunk that ship there. I guess the scuba charter operators got sick of killing seasick numpties on the Warrior? Anyway, I wouldn't be slitting your wrists just yet....

Yeah hopefully he'll be running another one before New years.. Oh and for the record he didn't cancel his course I had to pull out for unavoidable £@%^%!*@£ reasons..

Its a real bummer you are not coming up Rob. Anyway we are now heading up to the Cow Shed for what looks like a weekend of diving the wreck including a night dive on it. Im guessing the viz will not be fantastic. Perhaps if the swell drops down we may get further afield on Sunday.
