Anglesey ScubaFest this August
Second UK diving festival of the summer gears up
Clubs and groups of friends should book their places now for the ScubaFest in Anglesey, North Wales on 16th August.
It follows up on the May Bank Holiday ScubaFest event at Pentewan Sands in Cornwall, which was terrific fun and a real celebration of UK diving.
What’s not to like?
Unlike a week in the Red Sea, ScubaFest shouldn’t break the purse strings and is a great place to hang out with other UK divers, dive some great sites and check out the latest gear.
Manufacturers including Atomic Aquatics, BARE Sports, Zeagle and Typhoon will have their juicy wares on site for the weekend once again, with their full range of high performance dive gear for you to try in the water.
Clubs are encouraged to bring this own boats along, with storage for trailers/RIBs overnight at the Anglesey Outdoor Centre. Organisers say launching is a doddle, with a variety of interesting wreck and reef sites for divers to check out.
The weekend will also be a chance to try out some new skills. Garry Dallas of Simply Sidemount will be there offering side-slung try-dives. Families are catered for too, with BSAC Beachcomber treks for the kids.
Snappers should bring the camera and have a go at the photography competition. Plus in the evening there’ll be all the knees-up action of the standard dive weekender. What’s not to like?
Anglesey ScubaFest takes place on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th August 2014. For full information including accommodation and tickets, check out the website.
