Waves Shape


On Sunday 31 July 2022 four club members – Rob, Anne, Dougie and myself – had an early 7am start to take the boat out to Little Cumbrae. We collected the boat and drove down to Largs, launching from a slippy RNLI slip at low tide. The boat chugged slowly into life but once up and running was purring along magnificently after the work which has been done. The weather was extremely kind to us all day with blue sky and very little swell.

Anne and Dougie went in as a buddy pair for their first dive at the “Trail Island” site. Myself and Rob did the same site after them. We found the wall which goes down to about 25 metres and spent a while collecting scallops which were later eaten by myself with garlic butter and pasta – amazing.

The second dive was round the other side of the Island and was a different type of topography.

On the way back we saw the wonderful Waverly Paddle Steamer sailing down the Clyde. It really is just the most wonderful vessel.

Little Cumbrae is probably one of my favourite sites to dive. It is not too far to drive, is an easy launch and exit for the boat and has a great variety of sites to chose from. Looking forward ot a return trip.
