Pool session Fitzalan – 7:30 – 8:30pm - as ever if you need kit please let me or Steve know – afterwards in The SandMartin
Well, we’ve had our summer and made the most of it.
Had planned on a shore dive, and on recommendation, decided to try Brixham. After an early start, we got there in time to get a car park space right next to the beach.
With Mark Tucker hoping to complete his Ocean Diver course, Dan wanting to get salty, Mark Warren wanting a weekend away and me Steve and Bill there to oversee the operations, what could possibly go wrong?
To be honest, very little did! Mark T managed his tasks and can now be signed off.Dan took some pictures, and I wallowed like an upturned turtle on the beach.
What a beautiful day, and as a training dive, couldn’t really fault it. Its shallow, so great for training, plenty of life around (don’t tell Kas about the scallops), so worth the trip.
I suspect at high season the car park would be rammed, so potentially not as attractive then, but as a early season start it was great!
For those thinking about holidays and general diving – please make sure you’ve had a dive somewhere such as Cossie NDAC or Cromhall to wash off all the cobwebs and make sure the kit is all up and running – I don’t want anyone to be part of the Easter Incidents!
You should all by now have received details of the BSAC Election for Chairman and Council members . If you haven’t please contact BSAC
