What our members say...

I have been a member of this club for over about 8 years after joining from another club. It's a super club - own club house, own rib, lots of members - all very friendly. I fitted in straightaway. Quite a bit of diving and there's social side too. I've made some good friends there too. It’s a big part of my life.
