2018 Western Dive Rally – Grainne Uaile Sub Aqua Club

Jul 11 2018 Posted by Office Administraton


Killala Pier, Co. Mayo is where it’s happening! 

Members of the Grainne Uaile Sub Aqua Club (GUSAC) look forward to welcoming divers from around the country our 2018 Western Regional Dive Rally.

Like previous years, Killala will be the designated hub for the weekend activities as most dive excursions can go directly from Killala Pier or from proximities close by depending on the weather reports for the weekend. For clubs traveling with Boats, mooring and trailer parking facilities can be arranged close by.

An accommodation list is available whether you want to camp, book a B&B or rent a house for the weekend for the whole club.

The weekend registration fee of €20 includes lunch on Saturday and any necessary bottle fills.

If you need a boat space we ask for a €10 donation to contribute towards cost of fuel.

An additional €10 gets you a ticket for our popular BBQ on Saturday evening.

To ensure you get the most out of your weekend we ask that clubs planning to attend get in contact with us letting us know:  number of members attending, diving qualifications (trainees/club divers etc.) and if you will require boat spaces for dives or bringing your own boat.

Contact person Kathy McSharry at kathymcsharry@gmail.com or call/text 087 9077248 or any of the GUSAC members.
