Srong winds and a lot of very fast yachts zooming around Plymouth Sound meant my plans to dive some great wrecks and reefs was in tatters! Thankfully Joli gave me a last minute call to ask for my hand with a training weekend. So Gildenburgh Water it was, for some green water, mask-clearing, diver rescue scenarios and even some fun. It was a great substitute (believe it or not!)
Two of our Ocean Diver trainees…
…Melania and Markus plunged into the lovely 17 degree pea-souper and completed lots of exercises towards their OD qualification.
Markus even found time to practice his underwater pool skills, lucky for him there were no balls or I would’ve thrashed him :)
Congratulations also go to Neil and Lucy who attained a very cool Black Qualification in the Advanced Decompression Procedures (ADP) course in Bouyancy and Trim (black is the top mark!)
Well done as well to Elina for completing a dry suit course with ease.
I also got a Black qualification in the ADP course… not bad considering it took me about half of the assessment time to realise I was being assessed!!
The biggest thank you is of course reserved for Joli for giving up so much of her free time to do this for our trainees and members!!!
