The South East Dive Rally 2014 runs from the 4th - 6th of July this year. The base will be the Hook Sub Aqua Clubhouse at Slade Harbour Co Wexford.
Registration for the event is €10 (only divers need register). If you want to take the hassle out of registration why not register on COMS before coming however we will take registrations on the weekend. Divers and their family/friends are welcome to camp on the land around the club house. The club house will be left open all weekend so facilities such as toilet, showers, kitchen etc will be available 24 hrs.
For those of you not into camping don't worry there are plenty of holiday homes on and around the hook peninsula. You can contact Aoife Chapman 0860241979 if you are interested in staying in the holiday homes in hookless village or check out the hook tourism website which has details of all local accommodation.
For those bringing family with them the local light house and Loftus hall run tours and have plenty of activities for young and old alike. For all your little pirates the lighthouse are running their annual pirate event with plenty of activities to keep the children entertained.
There will be a BBQ on the saturday at the club house which will be €9 and payable to the Tomasz who is putting on the BBQ. For those of you who were here last year you will remember how good his food was.
For all you budding photographers and videographers out there don't forget your camera. We will be running a photography competition which you will certainly want to be a part of. We have some amazing prizes donated by local business. The photography competition is being run by Ivan Donoghue in memory of Vincent O'Brien.
We would ask where possible that clubs would bring a boat. We will try to facilitate all divers where possible however we can only cater for so many people on the boats that we have here in the southeast. And for those of you who prefer a bit of shore diving there is an abundance of shore dives dotted around the hook peninsula.
There is plenty of snorkelling opportunities also for those who have a love for snorkelling.
If anyone has any other queries they can contact myself karen Bolger on 087 960 3456 after 6 O'Clock monday - friday or anytime at the weekend.
