Great article in Outsider Magazine about Steve Redmond's Fastnet swim in aid of West Cork Underwater Search and Rescue.

"Revered for being the first person in the world to successfully complete the Ocean’s Seven Challenge (the swimming equivalent of conquering the highest mountains on each of the seven continents), the legend that is Steve Redmond (53) is now taking on yet another epic challenge (and another world first) a tad closer to home.

The Carlow man (but now West Cork local) is set to take on a unique and never-before-attempted Irish endurance challenge in aid of West Cork Underwater Search and Rescue. At the end of August, he will take on a 40km swim from Baltimore Harbour all the way out to the iconic Fastnet Rock Lighthouse and back! English channel rules apply, which means just togs, goggles, a hat and zero contact with the boat..."

Gallery of photos from this mornings dive on U260 south of Union Hall. WCUSAR divers left Union Hall at 0630 to dive the 44 meter deep World War 2 German submarine at high tide.

Our boat crew of Aodh and (skipper) Muireann put the shot right next to the sub’s conning tower! The dive team could see the wreck at 27m and the water clarity was such that torches were not necessary.

The U260 is certainly one of the most iconic dives off the West Cork coast.

Thanks to Courtmacsherry Harbour Lifeboat for inviting us to attend their open day yesterday. We were in great company with Irish Coast Guard, Cork West Civil Defence, and Gardai from Bandon as well as the Garda dog unit.

Hundreds of people attended the stands and we are delighted at the support we got from the local community.

Thanks to Patrick Mulcahy, Dervla Mulcahy and Niall Mc for manning the stand!
