• Easter Trip 2024

    David’s words

    What can I say about ET? It was fantastic and so good to be back at Porthkerris. Even though the drive down on Good Friday was a bit of a beast! The big question though, was would the weather play fair and let us dive? Yes it would and although the surf was a challenge and the vis probably not as good as we’d like, and after being frequently tumbled, we made it safely in and out of the water most day! We launched seahorse for a successful trip to the wreck of the Volnay and even got some training done! But the weather didn’t always play fair and some evenings we were as wet on the beach as we were in the sea! Well some of us were as wet in the sea as we were on the beach! The odd leaky dry suit. The caravans at Kennack Sands were a welcome retreat. Warm, comfortable and a great place to rest, recharge and enjoy some fantastic food. Thank you to all those that fed us so brilliantly. Bellies full and beers or ciders in hand, we chilled out in the evenings as we waited for MC Clara to give us the daily report, in rap! (See below) and some tunes on the guitar from Benjo.



  • OUUEG 60th Anniversary Dinner

    Last night we celebrated our club’s 60th anniversary with a formal dinner at St Hilda’s College, Oxford. It was a great success with over 50 current and former members in attendance.

    OUUEG 1980-onwards What a fantastic evening! Thank you to everyone who came and made it so special.

  • New Year's Day Dive

    It’s not often we make The Oxford Times, but after starting the New Year with an invitational dive in Hinksey Lake we found ourselves on the front page and a great article on the inner pages.

  • Trip Report Plymouth 14-15th October 2023

    This spontaneous trip was both my first expedition with OUUEG and first time diving in the ocean!

    Early on the Saturday morning, six of us headed down to Plymouth to spend the weekend diving off the clubs RHIB, Seahorse, moored at Plymouth Yacht Haven Marina. In the late morning, after emptying the large amount of built-up rainwater in Seahorse, we headed off to dive around Penlee Point and the Rame Peninsula.

  • Stoney Cove, 21 October 2023

    Even though I have been diving for quite a while, it was my first time diving in the UK. The members of OUUEG while qualifying me to use a dry suit in a fun and interactive manner, organized our single day trip to Stoney Cove. Stoney Cove Stoney Cove
