    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.

  • 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


  • Trip Report Plymouth 12-13 July 2023

    In the good old tradition of OUUEG Plymouth trips, we went down to Devon to spend a weekend diving off our own club RHIB, which had just been refurbished, re-tubed and put back to its mooring place at Plymouth Yacht Haven Marina near Mount Batten.

    We got some nice accommodation in a private hostel/hotel, the Lake House in Hooe, only 3 minutes away from the marina. It wasn’t overly expensive, clean, quiet, and definitely an upgrade from the bunk house we usually stay in, however, I missed a communal area a bit, and we had to gather in one of the bedrooms for breakfast. Still, I would go back, since the location was so convenient!

    Our Saturday started with an early rise, we planned to hit the morning slack tide. Weather forecast promised a force 5 gusting 6 from SW, and we decided that getting out of the Sound wasn’t practical and we would try to dive sites on the Western end inside the Sound, for example Barn Pool. Upon arriving at the marina and inspecting the boat, however, we found out that the seams in the bow tubes had come apart!
