  • Ocean Diver in progress :

    • Sam
    • Fin
  • There are 4 people scheduled for try dives – date to be agreed but all offers of help appreciated.
Training Records
As we are moving over to an internet based system for ease of reference for the instructing team I would like the chance to have a chat to each member over the next few weeks and update the record and to discuss individual ongoing training requirements.
Equipment Update
  •  Kit audit has now taken place, Tim will update the list.
  • Compressor has arrived! Tim is in the process of commissioning it ready to fill the club cylinders.
  • There are some out of test 10l dumpy and 12l tall for sale, they are in good external condition and should pass, please contact Tim if of interest
  • Boat – batteries have been checked and it has been decided to keep them for another year. New VHF will be purchased shortly. Plan is to have a work party on the boat before the end of February.
Diving Officer’s Message
It is a club requirement that before going out on the boat each season every member has a dive in the pool to check equipment and refresh skills.
