BSAC have been advised that following the stationing of an All Weather Lifeboat in north Wales the RNLI have set up a Refuelling station at Trevor Pier, north Wales.
As clubs are aware this popular shore diving site attracts divers from all over North Wales and the North West of England and the RNLI and the local authority have asked that we alert our clubs and divers who may use the site to be aware of the following.
The RNLI Lifeboat will routinely visit the pier to refuel during high water normally on Wednesday evening and Saturday midday.
Additional visits may be necessary at other times following major deployment of the Lifeboat.
Refuelling of the site and other works will be conducted by a visiting barge.
Works are likely to continue for the remainder or 2013.
Divers are advised to be aware of the above activity and to exercise especial care at all times when diving the Pier to be aware of the risk of this surface traffic.
Clubs and all divers are requested to ensure they have shore cover who are able to advise any visiting vessels of the presence of divers and where possible display a diving flag to warn of their presence.
