Dates are ok for me. Just have to work out logistics of how to get there. Is there enough room for my SWMBO?
just returning to normal life after a v.extensive external examiners board visit to the dept...
Am afraid that's first week of lectures for the year and it wont be easy not to be at the uni.
I'm sure there'll be other oportunities to meet and explore your beautiful crafts but doesn't look like this one works for me.
even more good news you're in !

for those that have a reservation, pls keep me updated if your plans change, and if you or your partner can't make it for a certain reason,
you might make someone else happy.
same for extra "non" diving guests, as we don't know yet if another boat will be around, we put these reservations on hold. or also on a waiting list.
later this month I will post more practical information and details,
have been thinking about this Callum,

when mates stay in a hotel, we are very limited in the distance we can travel, we have to stay in the area.
This is tipically not the aim of a dive cruise.
the number of divers on BA is limited, 6 is nice, 8..9 is maximum, so even with non resident guests, or guests on other boats,
we can't accomodate more divers.
we don't know yet if a boat from the Antibes gang will show up, to accomodate the "tourist visitors"
let this occasion be a try-out, and make conclusions for a next cruise
Looks like you are going to have a wonderful time!
It sounds like it is going to be a wonderful trip, we are still keeping fingers crossed our property situation will grant our dreams this Spring/Summer. We are still hoping to achieve our Day Skipper qualifications and ICC this year all being well. As for Diving Lou needs to do her Padi refreshers for her instructor certificates etc but once done she is again qualified to take novices down. So future trips will hopefully be viable for us.
We are hoping we may be able to meet up with you guys somewhen down there on the glorious Med even if it is just to say Hi . Got to keep positive the Med cruise aboard our own Boat dream is firmly in our Hearts
Hope it all works out wonderfully for all of you, you really are a lovely bunch of people.
Hi Bart my wife has decided not to go on the inaugural Forum Dive Cruise as a non diver and with limited spaces it would be selfish to deprive other divers, and with Match probably not being available there will be a lack of accommodation. However I did say that maybe MapisM will arrange one next year in Sardinia!!
