Ten hardy Clidivers braved the freezing wind and snow last Sunday to dive in the lovely warm waters of Ironmonger Row Baths. Well it felt warm for the first hour anyway! We were taking part in an Inspire day at Ironmonger Row Baths. This is a post-Olympic promotion get people to try out a new sport. The fact that scuba diving is probably the only non-competitive sport in the UK did not deter our participation or enthusiasm.
Of the 60 adults who turned up over the three hour period, about 50 opted for a free swim and ten for a free try dive, so swimming won hands down as sport of choice – but we were more than happy to have ten try-divers and they all seemed to have a really good time. Hopefully a few will join in our next Ocean Diver course. Stefano was on hand to take some pictures, which also went down a treat.
