Capernwray Night Dive

Capernwray Night Dive

Seven of us decided to brave the waters of Capernwray on a November night. For some it was a first night dive, for others it was their first in British waters, having done many in warmer climes.

We started gathering about 3pm in lovely sunshine, not a typical November day. The water wasn't a typical November temperature either - a luxurious 13 deg! On occasions I've been colder up there in the middle of Summer.

We all entered the water in daylight about 4.30pm but surfaced in the dark, feeling pleasantly warm. After a break of a couple of hours, enough time for food, a hot drink and to get cylinders re-filled, we were back in for the second dive. Again, nobody complaining of cold when coming out. Fireworks just before 8pm rounded off a very pleasant afternoon/evening.

Thanks to Mike C for the parkin and to Elaine for her lemon drizzle cake.
