Clydebank Sub Aqua Club is 60 years Young

October 2021

Members of Clydebank Sub Aqua Club recently celebrated its 60th Year with a meal in a local Clydebank Indian Restaurant. The event, organised by Club Treasurer Michelle Morgan, was a great success, with plenty of traditional Clydebank Banter and food.

Jack Morrison has been a member of the Club since the beginning. Obviously he was a mere youth back then, barely able walk, let alone fin.

Jack said; "Sixty years ago the first meeting was in the basement of Clydebank Library followed by a pool session in what was then called the New Baths. I was 15 and you had to be 16 to use an aqualung so no try dive for me that night. Didn’t put me off as I’m still here."

Digital Diving Logbooks

Here are examples of the best Digital Diving Logbooks on the market. If you know of any good Digital Logbooks, please get in touch via the "Contact Us" page (bottom of page)

As most divers use a dive computer it might be considered logical to take advantage of all the data collected by the computer and, at the same time, make logging your dives simpler. Having downloaded your dive details in to a digital logbook, all you have to do is add the details that the computer cannot know, such as the name of the dive site, weather details, tidal information, your buddy, whether it was a boat dive or shore dive and any notes you wish to make about the dive.

Of course, you do not have to add all this additional information, but it will make a more complete logbook which you may enjoy looking back on in the future.

Most dive computer manufacturers produce their own digital logbooks. Some are very good and some are absolute rubbish.

However, there are a number of excellent digital diving logbooks produced by enterprising individuals not attached to a particular manufacturer. Here are some below:

In my opinion the best available digital logbook is Diving Log 6

A very useful digital logbook is produced by Subsurface

However, it looks a bit "clunky"

but it is FREE!
